Cromwell – Highway Vehicle Accident

Authorities blocked off a portion of the highway in Cromwell following an accident yesterday afternoon.

State and local officials responded to Exit 20N (I-91) on the southbound side of Route 9 following reports of a vehicle crash in the area. According to officials, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash that resulted in injuries, prompting emergency crews to cordon off the scene. Firefighters and paramedics were requested and have since tended to motorists involved in the incident. It took longer than usual to clear the crash site due to various circumstances surrounding the accident. Initial reports came in at approximately 3:48 p.m., and it took road crews about an hour and a half to clear all lanes. The crash is still under investigation.

Officials will always process crash sites with the intention of protecting the safety of everyone involved, as well as giving investigators the opportunity to collect as much evidence as they can. Because of these and other factors, the amount of time needed to clear crash sites can vary, and is usually an indicator of the severity of a particular incident. These things said, if authorities discover reckless behavior or negligence in any of these cases, injured parties can consult legal experts to explore avenues that can help them find closure after these typically traumatic events.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

Cromwell – Closure After Highway Accident

A section of the highway in Cromwell was blocked after a vehicle accident yesterday afternoon.

At around 4:10 p.m., officials responded to the southbound lanes of I-91 and immediately cordoned off the area after discovering a vehicle crash at Exit 21. EMS crews were quickly requested to assist everyone injured in the incident involving a still unspecified number of vehicles. It took a while for road crews to clear the site of all obstructions — all lanes were cleared at approximately 5:50 p.m. Victims’ identities have yet to be disclosed pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. This post will be updated with more information as they become available.

It is not unusual for emergency crews to take their time in clearing various road accidents as assisting injured motorists and allowing investigators to collect evidence are necessary steps. Having said that, it can be a good indicator of the severity of a particular incident, which makes establishing accountability as important as ever. Causes/culprits must be brought to justice, while victims should be given ample opportunities to find closure, even seeking damage claims if appropriate.

According to authorities, the incident occurred at approximately 6:00 a.m. and involved a tractor-trailer and a car that collided on the northbound side of I-91, just before Exit 22.

At around 5:06 p.m., a truck driven by a still unidentified driver was traveling on the northbound side of Route 9 when figured in an accident about a quarter of a mile past Exit 19 (West Street/Route 372).

Officials have yet to specify the number of people and vehicles involved in the incident — the crash is still under investigation. Authorities will release updates when necessary.

State and local officials handling this case have yet to release details informing us of the severity of this incident.

Cromwell – Driver In Fatal Crash Charged

A driver responsible for a highway fatality in Cromwell was arrested yesterday.

28-year-old Dayquan Hibbert of New Britain was just arrested by state officials in connection to an October 26, 2018 incident where he was involved in a crash that killed 28-year-old John William Griffin. Hibbert was driving a car southbound on I-91, with Griffin as his passenger, when he tried avoiding a traffic stop, crashing his vehicle at Exit 21. Hibbert sustained injuries in the crash, while Griffin was killed in the incident. According to authorities, Hibbert later admitted that he was driving under the influence when the crash occurred. He is currently facing multiple charges, including driving under the influence and manslaughter, and is scheduled to appear in court today.

Cromwell – Highway Crash Update

Authorities have just identified the victim of last Tuesday’s crash in Cromwell.

36-year-old Diego Rivera was driving a tractor-trailer, traveling south on I-91, when he collided with another vehicle near Exit 21. A pickup truck driven by 62-year-old Assunto Cecere-Palazzo suddenly swerved and hit Rivera’s vehicle, forcing the semi to hit a guardrail before falling down an embankment. Rivera sustained serious injuries and had to be airlifted (LifeStar) to St. Francis Hospital for treatment. Cecere-Pallazo also sustained injuries after his truck hit a guardrail and was also transported to the hospital. The accident remains under investigation. Officials are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

The details about this case already available to the public highlight many of the circumstances that precede road accidents that result in serious injuries. Authorities will always investigate these incidents thoroughly so that they can gather information that can help prevent future accidents. It’s also important to note that any instance of reckless driving, DUI or negligence can entitle victims/aggrieved parties to compensation/damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.

Cromwell – Overturned Semi In Highway Crash

An accident closed down I-91 in Cromwell yesterday afternoon.

The crash occurred on the southbound side of the highway, between exits 21 and 20. According to authorities, a tractor-trailer overturned, resulting in heavy delays that lasted several hours.
