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.

Newtown – Rollover Crash

A rollover crash occurred in Newtown yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 1:40 p.m., fire and EMS crews arrived on the northbound side of Route 25 (South Main Street), just past Button Shop Road, and discovered a tractor-trailer that had overturned in the area. Responders quickly tended to the driver of the vehicle, while other crews closed down the scene to facilitate an investigation of the crash. Motorists on Route 25 experienced heavy delays due to the incident, while emergency crews stayed at the site well into the evening. Officials have yet to identify the driver of the semi and if other vehicles were involved in the crash. They will release updates as their investigation progresses.

Road accidents involving trucks can frequently result in heavy delays and serious injuries. Identifying the causes of these accidents can help authorities make changes that will improve road safety for everyone. Also, in cases involving DUI, reckless behavior or negligence, this would have the secondary benefit of allowing injured parties to file for damages with the help of expert legal counsel.

Newtown – Single-Vehicle Crash With Fatal Injuries

An early morning crash in Newtown yesterday causes fatal injuries.

The accident occurred at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Berkshire Road (Route 34) near its intersection with Jordan Hill Road. An older model Jeep Cherokee with two occupants was traveling on Route 34 when it swerved onto the westbound shoulder of the road and into a wooded ravine. 20-year-old Elliot Gregory and 19-year-old Philip Zuvanich both sustained fatal injuries and were killed in the crash. Authorities immediately arrived at the scene and are now investigating the crash.

Conclusions have yet to be made related to the cause of this incident. That said, this accident is noteworthy because many cases of injuries or deaths due to product/vehicle defects have happened in the past. We need to be aware of our rights and legal options as motorists if ever we are involved in similar road incidents.

Newtown – Injuries After Car Crashes Into House

A car crashes into a house in Newtown last Friday morning.

At approximately 9:20 a.m., a Toyota sedan driven by a 17-year-old male plowed into a property at the corner of Cherry Street and Cherry Heights Terrace, damaging gas and water lines in the house.

Newtown – Highway Crash Causes Injuries

A single-vehicle accident causes injuries and heavy traffic in Newtown yesterday morning.

Authorities reported a single-vehicle accident that occurred on the westbound side of I-84 crossing Newtown, between exits 9 and 10.

At around noon, Newtown Police responded to a report of a crash that occurred on Mt. Pleasant Road (also known as Route 6) near its intersection with Johnnie Cake Lane.

Emergency crews immediately transported both victims to Danbury Hospital for further evaluation and treatment of serious injuries. The identities of those involved and additional details have yet to be disclosed by officials.

Newtown – Toddy Hill Crash

More details about the rollover crash in Newtown last Sunday have been released by officials.

The driver of a car that rolled over in Newtown has now been identified as 27-year-old Anthony Giordano of Trumbull. At about 4:47 p.m. last Sunday, he was driving his 2009 Hyundai Elantra southbound on Toddy Hill Road when his car veered into the right shoulder, hitting a mailbox post. The car then swerved across the street and dropped off the left shoulder, rolling onto its roof. According to Newtown Police, Giordano sustained injuries in the crash and was immediately transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport. Authorities are still investigating the incident.

Officials covering this case have yet to determine if the driver of the vehicle could have been negligent or DUI. It pays to study these types of cases because injuries caused by defective products, cars in the case, have happened in the past. Consulting legal experts in this field will be beneficial if ever we or our loved ones are involved in these situations.

Newtown – Three-Vehicle Accident Causes Injuries

There was an accident on I-84 involving several vehicles last Saturday.

At around 2:01 p.m., three vehicles on the westbound side of I-84 crossing Newtown were involved in a crash. According to officials, a 2016 Honda CRV, driven by 82-year-old Thomas Como, crashed into the back of a 2006 Lincoln LS driven by 36-year-old Ryan Kowalczyk. The impact then pushed the Lincoln into the back of a 2007 Toyota Camry driven by 25-year-old Derek Wheeler. Kowalczyk and Como reportedly sustained injuries. Authorities said Como was overspeeding and received an infraction.

In some cases, multiple-vehicle incidents are caused by only one culprit, an SUV in this case. Regardless of the causes of these types of incidents, if negligence, DUI or reckless driving can be established, aggrieved parties can file for damage/compensation claims with the help of legal experts.

Newtown – Injuries After Rollover Accident

There was a single-vehicle accident reported in Newtown yesterday afternoon.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene of the accident and found one car on its roof. The incident occurred near the intersection of Toddy Hill Road and Deerfield Drive. Injuries were sustained by parties involved but there was not entrapment reported. No other details were provided by authorities.

Rollover or single-vehicle accidents need to be investigated thoroughly to determine if these incidents are caused by driver error or defects in vehicles involved. This is noteworthy because car defects or failures not caused by improper use or negligent maintenance can be grounds for filing damage claims against car manufacturers.

Newtown – Injury After Motorcycle Rider Crashes

A motorcyclist had to be transported to the hospital after his vehicle crashed in Newtown last Saturday.

At about 9:15 a.m., 61-year-old Dwight Floyd of Bristol was turning towards exit 10 of I-84 crossing Newtown when he lost control and slid. His motorcycle landed on its right side while he was ejected and landed on his back. Emergency responders quickly arrived at the scene and transported Floyd to Danbury Hospital immediately after he complained of chest pain. No charges were filed by authorities.

There have been cases where single-vehicle accidents can be attributed to driver error or bad road conditions. In this type of case where driver negligence is eliminated, aggrieved parties who sustain injuries can file for personal injury claims with the help of expert legal counsel.
