West Haven – Sentencing In Fatal Crash

A motorist was just sentenced to prison for killing another driver in West Haven.

47-year-old Robert Kryzkij will spend 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter, violating probation and engaging police in pursuit last July. On November 9, 2017, Kryzkij was driving a vehicle that rear-ended a car in Orange. Instead of stopping, Kryzkij fled the scene, prompting officials to pursue the suspect. He eventually made it to Meloy Road in West Haven where he collided head-on with a car driven by then 54-year-old Philip Hunt. Hunt sustained critical injuries and died in the crash. At the time of the incident, Kryzkij was driving under the influence. According to records, Kryzkij has a history of various offenses, including assault and other incidents of DUI.

This case highlights the circumstances that surround most road incidents caused by DUI. It is imperative that these offenders are taken off the road and brought to justice. That said, victims of these events have options at their disposal. Aggrieved parties should be given opportunities to cope and find closure, and in many cases, legal experts can help victims make sense of these options.

Bridgeport – Head-On Collision

Two vehicles collided near an intersection in Bridgeport last Saturday evening.

A few minutes past 9:00 p.m., two vehicles, a car and an SUV, driving in opposite directions collided near the intersection of Lindley Street and Randall Avenue. The driver of the car sustained injuries and was transported by responders to the hospital for treatment. The driver of the SUV fled the crash site before officers arrived. The crash resulted in slight delays in the area — the scene has since been cleared of all obstructions. Officials have yet to disclose the identity of the injured motorist and other relevant info. The crash is still under investigation.

While it’s likely that panic drives certain suspects to leave accident sites, it still won’t understate the fact that instances of hit-and-run will only make things worse for culprits/suspects. Having said that, motorists injured in incidents involving negligence will have the option to pursue options that can help them cope and find closure. Under appropriate circumstances, legal experts will advise filing for damages/compensation as a good option.

Hamden – Town Crash Update

Authorities just released more details regarding last Wednesday’s crash in Hamden.

At around 8:30 p.m., 25-year-old Moet Bacote of New Haven was driving his vehicle south on State Street (Route 5) when his vehicle suddenly swerved onto the opposite lane, crashing into a box truck being driven by a 26-year-old resident of Middlefield. Bacote sustained serious injuries in the head-on crash and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he pronounced dead shortly after. The still-unidentified driver of the truck was also transported to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and blocked off the roadway for several hours. Route 5 has since been cleared of all obstructions. The crash is still under investigation.

Authorities always investigate head-on collisions with the goal of making changes that can hopefully prevent future incidents. There have been cases where similar collisions were caused by reckless behavior, negligence or DUI, so these are factors that officials will always look at. Establishing liability will not only bring culprits to justice, but also allow victims to pursue legal options that can help them find closure.

Bristol – Head-On Crash With Multiple Injuries

Two SUVs collided in Bristol last Monday.

Authorities received reports of the crash at approximately 3:30 p.m. Officials converged at the intersection of West and South Streets and discovered two SUVs that collided head-on in the area. One of the vehicles came to a stop at the intersection, while the other was forced off the roadway into a vacant lot. Several motorists, including children, were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment of injuries. The incident is still under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more information.

Head-on collisions can be caused by different factors and almost always result in serious injuries. Accurately identifying the causes of these crashes can be challenging but necessary if future incidents are to be avoided. That said, injured parties not responsible for these collisions may have the option to file for damages if investigators discover negligence as a culprit. In these scenarios, legal experts can help these victims pursue this course of action.

Southbury – Fatalities After Head-On Collision

Two vehicles collided head-on in Southbury last Saturday morning.

48-year-old Diego Jimenez was driving his vehicle westbound on I-84 when he collided with another vehicle driven by 46-year-old David Hozer between Exits 16 and 15. According to authorities, Hozer was driving in the wrong direction when the crash occurred. Both motorists sustained critical injuries in the collision.

Authorities are currently investigating the incident and are encouraging anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

The details already available regarding this case point to one person as the culprit.

A motorist died while another was injured in a head-on crash in Baltic last Thursday.

The collision occurred in front of 416 Hanover Road at approximately 5:56 p.m. and involved two vehicles. 62-year-old Nancy Waldron-Beauregard of Hampton was driving her 2007 Toyota Corolla south when she collided with a 2009 Hyundai Sonata driven by 20-year-old Justin Edmund Izzarelli of Canterbury on the opposite lane. Both vehicles were severely damaged in the crash. Emergency crews brought Waldron-Beauregard to the hospital for treatment of injuries. Izzarelli was transported to The William H.

Stratford – 13 Injured In Head-On Collision

A head-on collision injured several people in Stratford last Saturday.

Two minivans were traveling near Main Street and River Road when they collided head-on. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and discovered 13 people hurt in the accident. Around half of those injured were children. According to responders, it took them about 30 minutes to extricate three victims from their vehicles. 12 victims were taken to Bridgeport Hospital, while one was brought to Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital. A firefighter was also injured while working at the crash site. The accident is currently under investigation.

It’s important for accident responders to ensure the safety of everyone involved in road incidents, so extricating trapped motorists is always a priority. Identifying culprits/causes is another concern that authorities focus on so that similar accidents can be prevented in the future. It pays to take note of these processes because, as motorists, we have legal options at our disposal if ever we or our loved ones are injured due to reckless or negligent actions.
