Manchester – Local Official Killed In Pedestrian Incident

A pedestrian was killed in an accident in Manchester yesterday evening.

At around 6:30 p.m., authorities received reports of an accident on Hartford Road. 75-year-old John Deeb, a local official, was found by officers lying on the ground and unresponsive.

Identifying the causes of pedestrian accidents can be challenging but necessary simply because almost all of these cases result in serious or critical injuries to people. Accountability must be promptly established so that responsible parties are taken off the road. These things said, people injured in these situations (or their next of kin) may have options at their disposal if investigators discover DUI, reckless behavior or negligence. This may involve seeking damages as a way of coping and eventually finding closure.

Manchester – Motorist Charged In Pedestrian Crash

A driver is facing charges in connection with a recent Manchester crash that killed a pedestrian.

51-year-old Donald Murak has just been charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle after authorities concluded their investigation into a July 4 incident on Broad Street. 92-year-old Ananias Cabonita was walking in front of Waddell School when he was struck by a vehicle driven by Murak. Cabonita sustained critical injuries in the crash and was transported to Hartford Hospital where he died on July 10. According to investigators, the weather that day was clear and with good visibility, factors that contradicted Murak’s claim that he didn’t notice the victim crossing the roadway. Murak is scheduled to appear in court on November 11.

Authorities investigating pedestrian incidents have to study all factors thoroughly to determine if reckless behavior or negligence may have been involved. Suffice it to say, the primary goal would always be to take culprits off the road and bring them to justice. Victims of these unfortunate events (or their families) would also have legal options at their disposal. Legal experts can study their cases and determine if filing for damages can be an appropriate course of action.

Manchester – Two-Vehicle Highway Crash

A section of I-84 was closed following a crash in Manchester last Saturday morning.

The rollover accident occurred on the eastbound side of I-84 crossing Manchester, just after exit 63.
