Old Saybrook – Multiple Injuries In Bus Accident

Ten people were injured in a bus-truck collision in Old Saybrook last Wednesday.

A few minutes before 11:00 p.m., a bus carrying passengers was traveling on the northbound side of I-95 when it started approaching a construction zone near Exit 67. According to officials, instead of slowing down, the driver maintained a speed too fast for conditions. Because of this, the bus rear-ended a Department of Transportation truck carrying equipment needed for road work. Nine bus passengers sustained injuries and were tended to by emergency responders. The driver of the DOT truck, 54-year-old Rowan Monington, Jr., was also injured in the collision. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and will release more info when appropriate.

Several factors could have caused this accident, and authorities will explore all possibilities so that liability can be accurately established. Having said that, if reckless behavior or negligence is discovered, injured parties may pursue various options as determined by legal experts.

At around 8:40 p.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to the southbound lanes of I-95 after receiving reports of an accident in the area.

In the absence of immediately apparent causes, single-vehicle accidents are thoroughly investigated for less-obvious possibilities, including product defects.

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.
