Newtown – Rush-Hour Accident On Highway

A vehicle crash occurred on the highway in Newtown yesterday.

At around 6:18 p.m., fire and EMS crews arrived on the eastbound lanes of I-84 to assist motorists injured in an accident that occurred about half a mile past Exit 10 (Church Hill Road/Route 6). Road crews immediately cordoned off the site, while medical personnel assisted everyone affected by the incident. Officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and people involved in the crash — it is still under investigation. All eastbound lanes were cleared by emergency personnel by 6:53 p.m. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more information.

Accident protocols require responders to cordon off crash sites so that evidence can be safety collated. It’s important to take note of this because identifying who or what causes road accidents can help officials make changes that will improve road safety for everyone. Not only that, legal experts can use information collected from various incidents to determine if injured parties can be entitled to compensation, particularly when acts of negligence or reckless behavior have been established.

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.

Waterbury – Highway Crash

State and local officials responded to a highway crash in Waterbury yesterday afternoon.

At around 3:47 p.m., emergency responders arrived on the southbound lanes of I-84, in the area of Exit 19 (Route 8), after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to them, an unspecified number of vehicles figured in an accident that resulted in injuries. Road crews immediately cordoned off the scene while medical personnel tended to everyone involved in the crash. Authorities were able to process and clear the site less than half an hour later, though the crash is still being investigated. The identities of motorists involved have yet to be disclosed — officials will do so when appropriate.

Processing accident sites on highways can pose risks to everyone in the area, including emergency responders. Clearing these sites as quickly as possible is always a primary objective for them. Having said that, investigators are also given ample opportunities to examine and collect evidence as identifying crash culprits can help state and local officials improve general road safety. This will also allow crash victims to file for damages in cases where their legal counsel determines that as their best option.

East Hartford – Rush-Hour Vehicle Accident

Officials responded to a highway accident in East Hartford yesterday.

At approximately 4:51 p.m., authorities received reports of a crash on the eastbound lanes of I-84 and quickly sent responders to the area. According to reports, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in an accident about a quarter of a mile past Exit 58 that resulted in injuries. The accident forced the closure of a portion of the highway — all lanes have since been cleared. Medical personnel have already assisted motorists affected by the incident, though officials have yet to identify anyone pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more information.

Rush-hour accidents, particularly on highways, have to be cleared promptly to avoid collateral effects, such as heavy delays and the possibility of other collisions. Having said that, authorities will always focus on accurately identifying accident causes/culprits as quickly as they can. This can benefit aggrieved parties as establishing accountability could allow them to file for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the help of legal experts.

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. Jimenez was taken to Waterbury Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival, while Hozer was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital where he eventually died yesterday (Sunday). 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. That said, investigators will still look at all possibilities before making a conclusion.  This is important to victims or their families because establishing accountability can help parties involved seek justice and find closure, particularly when reckless behavior, DUI or negligence are discovered.

Waterbury – Highway Vehicle Accident

A highway accident occurred in Waterbury yesterday.

At approximately 4:42 p.m., officials were alerted to a vehicle accident on the westbound lanes of I-84 and immediately sent emergency crews to the area. A still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash near Exit 20 that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel have already tended to motorists involved in the incident, and after an inventory of the crash scene, road crews were able to clear the site just several minutes later. The incident is still under investigation. Authorities will release more information when appropriate.

It is unfortunate but typical for nighttime accidents to result in injuries to people. Preventing future accidents will depend on the accurate identification of crash culprits so that authorities can effectively address them. Having said that, if we or our loved ones are ever involved in similar situations, there are legal experts who can help us determine what we can be entitled to under appropriate circumstances.

West Hartford – Vehicle Accident On Highway

An accident closed down a portion of the highway in West Hartford yesterday evening.

The crash was first reported at approximately 6:02 p.m. and officials immediately dispatched fire and EMS crews to the westbound side of I-84/Route 6. According to responders, a still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash about a quarter of a mile before Exit 41 (South Main Street). Road crews quickly cordoned off the scene to initiate cleanup operations and an investigation into the cause of the accident. All lanes were cleared about 40 minutes later. Authorities have withheld the identities of motorists involved pending an investigation. More information will be released when appropriate.

Highway accidents have to be processed and cleared quickly to avoid unnecessary delays while still allowing authorities to thoroughly investigate crash culprits/causes. It’s important to take note of this because if any form of negligence is established, injured motorists not responsible for these accidents may have options at their disposal. Consulting legal experts will help them determine their best course of action.

Danbury – Hit-And-Run Driver Wanted

Authorities are currently looking for a vehicle and driver involved in an incident in Danbury last Tuesday.

Officials responded to reports of a crash on the eastbound lanes of I-84 crossing Danbury, at the Exit 7 off-ramp (Route 202). 24-year-old Devon Ames of Danbury was driving her 2013 Mini Cooper on the right lane of the highway when an SUV driven by a still unidentified motorist swerved onto her lane, pushing her off the roadway. Ames sustained injuries in the incident and was tended to by emergency responders. The driver of the SUV stopped just past Exit 7 but immediately started driving again and fled the scene. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information about the SUV, described as either a dark blue- or black-colored vehicle, to contact them as soon as possible.

In cases like this, instances of hit-and-run will only strengthen cases of negligence or reckless behavior against accident suspects/culprits. Authorities handling these cases will always work diligently to bring these people to justice. As another benefit of this, motorists injured in these incidents may have the option of filing for damages if their legal counsel deems it appropriate.

Danbury – Highway Hit-And-Run

A hit-and-run incident happened on the highway in Danbury last Thursday evening.

Authorities were alerted to the crash at approximately 9:40 p.m. and immediately dispatched fire and EMS crews to the eastbound lanes of I-84. 25-year-old Matthew Schwartz of Woodbridge was driving his 2019 Subaru Crosstrek and slowed down for traffic when another vehicle hit him from behind near Exit 8. Schwartz reportedly sustained injuries in the collision. Instead of stopping, the still unidentified vehicle fled the scene. Officials are still investigating the accident and looking for the hit-and-run suspect. Anyone who may have information about the crash can contact authorities.

Instances of hit-and-run, in almost all cases, would only aggravate cases against suspects/culprits involved in road accidents, particularly when reckless behavior or negligence is established. Parties affected by these events can consult legal experts to determine what their best course of action would be.

Southbury – Multi-Vehicle Highway Crash Update

Authorities have just released updates regarding last Tuesday’s highway crash in Southbury.

The incident occurred on the westbound side of I-84, near Exit 14. According to updates released by officials yesterday, 16-year-old Garrett Sheehan exhibited reckless driving that led to the multiple-vehicle accident. Sheehan lost control of his 2007 BMW and hit a 2019 Chevrolet Impala. That vehicle then hit a 2016 Chevrolet Sonic, forcing it to spin out and crash into a guardrail before hitting a 2018 RAM Promaster. The pickup truck rolled over due to that final collision. The crash resulted in multiple injuries, and several motorists were taken to various area hospitals for treatment. Sheehan is scheduled to appear in court to face misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and violating passenger restrictions.

This accident highlights many of the circumstances that surround highway accidents that result in serious injuries to motorists. Reckless driving is a serious offense that requires an appropriate response so that future incidents can be avoided. It’s also important to note that victims of these unfortunate events can consult legal experts to explore various avenues related to filing for damages/compensation.
