Greenwich – Pedestrian Injured At Crosswalk

A pedestrian was hit by a passing car in Greenwich last Monday afternoon.

At approximately 1:40 p.m., a man was attempting to cross the intersection of Byram and Frontage Roads when a car hit him. He sustained injuries in the collision and was immediately tended to by responding EMS crews. He was transported to the hospital for evaluation and further treatment. According to officials, the driver of the vehicle did not notice the pedestrian crossing the roadway, failing to check all directions before crossing the intersection. The accident is still under investigation, and authorities have yet to identify any party involved in the incident.

This case highlights some of the circumstances that precede intersection accidents, particularly those involving pedestrians. Intersections are inherently dangerous areas for both pedestrians and motorists. Hopefully, establishing accountability can help authorities make changes that will improve road safety for everyone. These things said, we have to be aware of our legal options if ever we are involved in similar situations in the future.

Greenwich – Highway Tractor-Trailer Crash

Greenwich motorists experienced heavy delays following a truck crash yesterday morning.

At around 11:20 a.m., a tractor-trailer was traveling on the southbound side of I-95 when it collided with another vehicle near Exit 4 (Indian Field Road). The driver of the car was injured in the accident and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. The incident forced the truck into the center divider of the highway where it rolled over to its side. A significant amount of diesel fuel was spilled onto the roadway, forcing responders to cordon off the area and ask for support from cleanup crews. The accident resulted in massive delays that also affected local streets in the area. The crash is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more information.

This case highlights the diligence accident responders will always exhibit when dealing with any road incident. Crash sites have to be processed and cleared as quickly as possible to minimize collateral effects like, in this case, heavy delays. Of course, the safety of all motorists will always be their first priority, followed by the accurate identification of accident causes. The second point is noteworthy because motorists injured in similar scenarios may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate circumstances.

Greenwich – Highway Crash

Authorities were alerted to a highway crash in Greenwich yesterday morning.

At approximately 8:34 a.m., emergency crews were dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-95 to assist motorists injured in a vehicle accident. According to officials, a still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash that occurred about half a mile past Exit 3 (Arch Street). Medical personnel have since tended to people affected by the incident. Road crews were forced to close a section of the highway to facilitate an investigation of the crash. All lanes were cleared around 45 minutes later. Authorities have yet to identify motorists involved in the accident and will do so when appropriate.

Highway accidents, particularly those involving multiple vehicles, typically result in injuries. Authorities will always work hard to identify the causes of these incidents as this will help them improve highway safety. That said, parties injured in various accidents are entitled to legal avenues that can help them find closure, particularly when these accidents involve DUI, reckless behavior or negligence.

Greenwich – Vehicle Accident On Interstate

An accident closed down a section of the interstate in Greenwich yesterday evening.

At approximately 6:23 p.m., state and local officials received reports of a crash that occurred on the northbound lanes of I-95 and immediately dispatched emergency responders to the area. An unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash about a fifth of a mile before Exit 4 (Indian Field Road) that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel have since tended to everyone affected in the crash. The severity of the accident hobbled cleanup operations. Still, it only took less than an hour before road crews declared all lanes open. The identities of motorists involved in the incident have yet to be disclosed. Updates will be provided as soon as more information becomes available.

Investigating and clearing highway accidents can be challenging, particularly during rush hours. That said, the safety of everyone involved is always the priority of accident responders, after which identifying crash culprits becomes their focus. This is noteworthy because, as motorists, if ever we are involved in similar situations, establishing accountability can allow us to file for damages in cases where negligence, DUI or reckless behavior have been identified.

Greenwich – Highway Truck Accident

A truck was involved in a highway accident in Greenwich yesterday evening.

Medical personnel quickly tended to those involved in the incident, though officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists affected by it. An investigation is still ongoing. Updates will be provided as they become available.

Identifying the causes of truck accidents is very important as these incidents typically result in serious injuries and heavy damage. That said, if investigators establish negligence in any of these cases, victims/aggrieved parties may have the option of filing for damages as determined by their legal counsel.

Greenwich – Multi-Vehicle Highway Crash

A multiple-vehicle crash resulted in heavy delays in Greenwich yesterday afternoon.

Authorities received reports of the crash and immediately dispatched fire and EMS crews to the northbound lanes of I-95 crossing Greenwich, between Exits 4 and 5. Three vehicles reportedly collided, resulting in the closure of the left and center lanes of the highway. Medical personnel quickly tended to those injured in the accident, while other crews immediately started cleanup operations. The incident scene was cleared by 4:00 p.m., though officials still advised motorists to avoid the area if possible. The crash is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as they become available.

Highway accident sites are typically cleared faster than in other locations due to the heavy delays they may cause. That said, authorities will always focus on accurately identifying the causes of these incidents as doing this will help them make highway driving safer for everyone. On the other hand, injured parties can also file for damages against culprits as an important step in finding closure after these traumatic events. Talking to a legal expert should help them work towards this goal.

Greenwich – Cyclist Hit By Vehicle

A bike rider was seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident in Greenwich last Saturday.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Fairfield Road and North Street. At approximately 10:00 a.m., a cyclist was hit by a black vehicle in the area, resulting in serious injuries. Instead of stopping, the driver of the vehicle fled the area and was last seen traveling east on Fairfield Road. The victim was tended to by emergency crews and was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. Authorities are still looking for the suspect. They are requesting anyone who may have information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

In many instances involving reckless or negligent behavior, this type of incident opens up various avenues that victims/aggrieved parties can explore with the help of their legal counsel. Instances of hit-and-run can only strengthen these cases against suspects/culprits.

Greenwich – Highway Truck Crash

A highway accident resulted in massive delays in Greenwich yesterday morning.

The incident occurred on I-95 crossing Greenwich, just before exit 2. A tractor-trailer collided with another vehicle, resulting in closure of the right lane. Injuries were reported by officials, and emergency crews have tended to those involved in the crash. Authorities were able to clear the scene a short time later. Officials will release more information about the incident, including the identities of those involved, when appropriate.

Highway accidents involving large vehicles can cause heavy delays and serious injuries, so authorities will always focus on alleviating these two issues as quickly as possible. That said, accurately identifying the causes of these incidents is a priority: to prevent future accidents from happening, and to help victims find closure after these events.

Greenwich – Family Of Crash Victim Receives Settlement

The family of a motorist killed in an accident in Greenwich will receive compensation.

The settlement was agreed to by both parties last Friday and is connected to a November 2016 incident where then 38-year-old Cristina Ann Vomoca died after the car she was driving was hit by a tractor-trailer driven by 52-year-old Jeffrey Bodnar. The collision occurred on Arch Street, near the off- and on-ramps of I-95, exit 3. Bodnar was suspected of running the red light while crossing Arch Street. This resulted in his truck hitting Vomoca’s vehicle. The crash also injured 32-year-old Maiko Kobayashi who was Vomoca’s passenger at the time of the accident. The settlement of $18.75 million will be shouldered by Transervice Lease Corporation, the owner of the tractor-trailer.

This case exhibits many of the factors surrounding many road-related incidents that result in injuries or deaths. It’s important to note that in similar incidents, particularly where negligence played a part, victims or their families have options that can help them find closure. Talking to legal experts will help us understand these options.
