Bethel – Responders Recognized For Helping Crash Victim

Good samaritans were just commended by state officials for assisting a motorist who was injured in a crash in Bethel.

On June 14, a motorcyclist was traveling on I-84 West when he crashed near Exit 8. He sustained serious injuries, with severe bleeding on his left leg. He was waiting for responders to arrive and might have lost his life if not for the actions of individuals who happened to be near the crash site. Edward Bell of Southbury and Patrick Doherty of Sandy Hook voluntarily stopped to assist the injured rider, applying first aid to stop the bleeding. Responders eventually arrived and transported the victim to the hospital for treatment. The rider lost his leg from the knee down, but otherwise recovered from the incident. State officials recently commended Bell and Doherty, as well as other officials and civilians, for their diligence in responding to this and other incidents, saving people’s lives in the process.
