Fairfield – Highway Crash Causes Delays And Injuries

Authorities responded to a highway crash in Fairfield yesterday morning.

Two vehicles were involved in a crash on the southbound side of I-95 crossing Fairfield, between exits 19 and 18. Injuries were reported by officials, and the left lane was closed following the crash while emergency crews tended to those involved in the accident. Authorities have yet to release more information about the incident and will do so when they become available.

Highway accidents have a higher chance of causing injuries due to the high speeds involved. Having said that, investigators will always look at any negligent act/behavior that could cause these incidents. For motorists, this should remind us that we have rights and options whenever we travel along any road across the state.

Fairfield – Fatal Injuries After Road Incident

A man was fatally injured by a fallen tree in Fairfield last Sunday.

54-year-old David L. Schmerzler was driving north on Sturges Highway near his residence when a tree limb fell onto his car causing serious injuries. Emergency crews quickly responded to reports of the accident and found Schmerzler unconscious inside his car when they arrived. He was immediately transported to Norwalk Hospital where he died soon after. Schmerzler’s wife and daughter, who were also inside the vehicle, sustained minor injuries but were considered stable. Authorities are still investigating the incident and have warned motorists to be more careful in light of current weather conditions in the area.

Fairfield – Law Promoted After Highway Crash

Yesterday, Fairfield officials reminded the public of the “Move Over Law.”

The campaign is being led by various state agencies in response to the incident on I-95 last week where a state trooper was seriously injured after his cruiser was hit by a private vehicle whose driver seemingly failed to identify the highway emergency. Other incidents related to this law have occurred in the past, and according to officials, many motorists are still unaware of this. Authorities are reminding everyone to slow down, give way to, and avoid emergency vehicles on all roads, allowing crews to perform their duties in critical situations.

Following this campaign is important because it highlights how laws in the state are designed to promote safety on all roads. We should also be aware of our legal rights and options as motorists or pedestrians in case we or our loved ones are ever involved in any road incident.

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.

Fairfield – I-95 Crash Culprit Identified

Connecticut State Police have released additional details related to the highway crash last Sunday that injured several people.

28-year-old State Trooper Gregory Sawicki stopped on the breakdown lane of I-95 crossing Fairfield last Sunday to assist a disabled vehicle with two occupants. A third vehicle crashed into Sawicki’s vehicle, forcing the cruiser to hit the disabled vehicle. The two occupants of the disabled vehicle sustained minor injuries, while Sawicki injured his leg and several ribs. According to authorities, the third vehicle was being driven by an off-duty corrections officer at the time of the incident. The case is still being investigated. Video footage from Sawicki’s cruiser is currently being studied and should shed more light on the details of the crash.

Officials working on this case are studying all possible angles/causes, including negligence and DUI. This is noteworthy because if any of these factors are established, injured parties would be entitled to filing damage/compensation claims.

Fairfield – Several People Injured In Highway Crash

An early morning crash in Fairfield yesterday resulted in several injured people, including a state trooper.

The accident occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. on I-95 crossing Fairfield, between exits 21 and 22. A state trooper stopped to assist a disabled car on the highway. A third vehicle crashed into the state trooper’s stopped car, which in turn lunged forward, hitting the disabled car in front of it. 29-year-old state trooper Gregory Sawicki was transported to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment. 32-year-old Joseph Buzzanca, the driver of the third vehicle, was sent to St. Vincent’s Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. 25-year-old Carmen Cisneros and 22-year-old Jose Martin Guerrero, occupants of the disabled vehicle, were also transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center for minor injuries.

Multiple-vehicle accidents are complicated to investigate, although in this case, the offending vehicle has been easy to identify. Studying this and other similar incidents can be beneficial because it helps us understand our rights and options as motorists. Consulting legal experts in this field can also be useful.
