Newtown – Injuries After Two-Car Collision

A collision between two vehicles happened in Newtown last Saturday.

At around noon, Newtown Police responded to a report of a crash that occurred on Mt. Pleasant Road (also known as Route 6) near its intersection with Johnnie Cake Lane. The crash involved two vehicles and both drivers sustained injuries from the incident. Emergency crews immediately transported both victims to Danbury Hospital for further evaluation and treatment of serious injuries. The identities of those involved and additional details have yet to be disclosed by officials.

This accident resulted in serious injuries to everyone in the crash, so it’s imperative for authorities to determine the cause of the incident as soon as possible. Once liability is established; and if negligence, DUI or reckless driving are involved; aggrieved parties can file for compensation/damage claims.

New London – Crash Fatality Identified

The woman who was driving the car that crashed in New London last Thursday evening has been identified.

Just before 8:00 p.m., 73-year-old Susan Wheeler of Niantic was driving with a companion when her car swerved off Ocean Avenue (Route 213) and crashed into various obstacles, including a utility pole, before stopping in a residential yard. Respondents quickly arrived at the scene and brought Wheeler to L+M Hospital for treatment. She was later pronounced dead by hospital officials. Her passenger stayed at the scene of the accident. Authorities are still investigating the incident and are asking anyone who may have information about the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

Road accidents that result in serious injuries or deaths will be investigated by authorities thoroughly to determine if vehicle defects could have caused them.

North Branford – Woman Trapped After Crash

A woman was trapped inside her car and fatally injured after a crash in North Branford last Thursday evening.

At approximately 8:23 p.m. emergency crews responded to a report of an accident in front of 1536 Middletown Avenue (Route 17) where a car crashed into a pole. Kelly Reilly was trapped inside her car and needed to be extricated by fire crews. After being freed, she was immediately transported to Yale New Haven Hospital for treatment but was later pronounced dead by hospital officials. Police are still investigating the cause of the accident and are asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

Brookfield – Fatal Injuries After Crash

A car was involved in a fatal car crash in Brookfield last Saturday evening.

The accident occurred at approximately 10:45 p.m. on Candlewood Lake Road. The vehicle was traveling northbound and was at the entrance of Candlewood Birches when it swerved from the roadway, hitting a utility pole and a parked car. The driver was trapped and needed to be extricated from the car by emergency crews. The driver was then immediately transported to Danbury Hospital for treatment but was later pronounced dead by hospital officials. No other person or vehicle was involved in the crash.

Easton – Two-Vehicle Crash With Injuries

There was an early morning crash involving two vehicles in Easton early Thursday morning.

At around 7:30 a.m., police, fire and medical units responded to a crash report at the intersection of Redding Road and Westport Road (also known as Route 136). Two vehicles were involved in the accident and one of them crashed into a telephone pole before stopping. According to officials, occupants of both vehicles sustained minor injuries but refused treatment from EMS crews. They were all wearing seatbelts at the time of the incident.

Accident involving two or more vehicles can be caused by all vehicles involved or just by one culprit car or driver. That said, authorities will investigate these types of incidents to determine if negligence or reckless driving are involved, in which case aggrieved parties can file for compensation/damage claims.

A car crash in New London yesterday evening results in one fatality.

A road accident was reported to New London Police just before 8:00 p.m. A car crash occurred on Ocean Avenue involving one car with two occupants.

The driver sustained major injuries and was immediately transported to L&M Hospital where the victim died. The second occupant was assisted on site and was not brought to the hospital.

Fairfield – Settlement For Crash Injuries

A man from Stratford who was permanently disabled after sustaining serious crash injuries has accepted a settlement last Wednesday.

35-year-old Christopher Colon was driving his car on the southbound side of Interstate 95 crossing Fairfield back on October 3, 2016 when he was hit from behind by a car that had also been hit from behind by a van. Antonio Sodaro from Milford was driving the truck. Colon sustained serious back injuries in the crash which eventually resulted in a 20 percent permanent disability of his lumbar spine (lower back). A settlement of $741,000 was reached before Colon’s lawsuit against Sodaro was about to go to trial in a Bridgeport Superior Court.

This settlement exemplifies how expert legal counsel and Connecticut laws can help protect our rights as motorists in cases of personal injuries. It pays to take note of this ruling if ever these types of incidents happen to us or our loved ones.

Newtown – Toddy Hill Crash

More details about the rollover crash in Newtown last Sunday have been released by officials.

The driver of a car that rolled over in Newtown has now been identified as 27-year-old Anthony Giordano of Trumbull. At about 4:47 p.m. last Sunday, he was driving his 2009 Hyundai Elantra southbound on Toddy Hill Road when his car veered into the right shoulder, hitting a mailbox post. The car then swerved across the street and dropped off the left shoulder, rolling onto its roof. According to Newtown Police, Giordano sustained injuries in the crash and was immediately transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport. Authorities are still investigating the incident.

Officials covering this case have yet to determine if the driver of the vehicle could have been negligent or DUI. It pays to study these types of cases because injuries caused by defective products, cars in the case, have happened in the past. Consulting legal experts in this field will be beneficial if ever we or our loved ones are involved in these situations.
