New London – Pedestrian In Critical Condition After Hit

A pedestrian was seriously hurt in a crash in New London last Tuesday evening.

At around 10:15 p.m., a pedestrian was walking near the entrance of New London Mall when he/she was hit by a vehicle driven by 37-year-old Michael Meare. According to emergency responders, the still-unidentified victim was trapped beneath the vehicle and sustained serious injuries. The pedestrian was rescued and immediately transported to the hospital where he/she is currently listed in critical condition. The driver of the vehicle was apprehended by officials and is suspected of driving under the influence. The case is still under investigation. Updates will be provided when appropriate.

Consulting legal experts will help aggrieved parties make sense of their options and determine a suitable course of action that will help them find closure.

New London – Man Injured By Paving Equipment

A worker was seriously hurt in an accident in New London yesterday afternoon.

A few minutes before 3:00 p.m., local authorities received reports of an incident on Mohegan Avenue Parkway (Route 32) just in front of Connecticut College. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and discovered a person trapped between a paver and a pickup truck. The victim sustained serious injuries in the accident and was immediately transported to L+M Hospital for treatment. According to officials, no other vehicle was in the area when they arrived.

New London – Driver Charged For Intentionally Hitting Car

Yesterday, New London police have formally charged a man for intentionally crashing his car into his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle.

On the evening of April 28, 38-year-old Juan B. Martinez of 93 State Pier Road, intentionally crashed his Nissan Altima into a Kia Sportage driven by his ex-girlfriend on Crystal Avenue. He was reportedly following the victim’s vehicle for some time before the incident occurred. When authorities arrived at the scene, they checked both vehicles, approximately 150 yards apart and saw Martinez trying to leave the area. On the other hand, the ex-girlfriend who was not named by officials, and her male companion sustained minor injuries but both declined treatment. Authorities charged Martinez with first-degree reckless endangerment, reckless driving, evading responsibility and criminal attempt to commit second-degree assault. He is currently free on a $50,000 bond and is due to appear in a New London Superior Court on the 26th of June.

In cases like this where the suspect had intentions of harming other people, victims can ask for legal assistance from experts so that they can file for personal injury claims against the suspect.
