Colchester – Multi-Vehicle Intersection Crash

Several vehicles collided at an intersection on Colchester yesterday morning.

Shortly before 8:00 a.m., authorities received reports of a crash at the intersection of Route 16 and Bulkeley Hill Road. Multiple EMS teams were requested on-site after several unspecified vehicles crashed in the area. The number of involved motorists and the extent of their injuries have yet to be disclosed, but everyone was deemed responsive and stable. This incident is currently under investigation. Officials have yet to release additional info and are expected to do so when appropriate.

While we have to wait for officials to release more info regarding this accident, it worth noting that many intersection crashes are caused by at least one errant driver/vehicle. Establishing liability is crucial as many of these incidents result in serious injuries to either motorists or pedestrians. Some of these injuries may be challenging to recover from, so victims of these situations are always advised to seek legal help so that they can properly pursue options that can help them cope.
