New Haven – Fatality In Pedestrian Crash

A pedestrian was killed in New Haven early yesterday morning.

A few minutes before 4:00 a.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to 662 Middletown Avenue (Route 17) after receiving reports of a pedestrian accident in the area. A 32-year-old man with critical injuries was found at the scene. The victim allegedly threw himself onto the path of a passing vehicle. The driver of the car that hit him immediately stopped. Residents in the area have complained about overspeeding on that roadway, and officials are currently looking at these complaints. The crash is currently under investigation. More information, including the identities of those involved, will be provided when appropriate.

Details already available in this case are presenting conflicting evidence related to the cause of the crash. That said, investigators will always study all possible angles in establishing liability in these scenarios. It’s important to point out that people injured in these incidents (or their families), if determined not to be responsible, have various options they can discuss with their legal counsel, including filing for damages.

Danbury – Pedestrian Incident Case Update

Authorities just released an update regarding a negligent homicide case in Danbury.

19-year-old Jhon Jairo Penaherrera is currently charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle in connection to an October 21, 2018 incident where he hit a pedestrian on White Street. 43-year-old Jose P. Yupangui sustained critical injuries in the accident and died at Danbury Hospital. It took several months before a warrant was issued, and Penaherrera surrendered himself to authorities back on May 30. Originally scheduled for August 16, his pre-trial hearing was just continued to September 6.

While the details of this case will be better understood by legal experts, it’s important that everyone takes note of this and other similar cases.

Bristol – Disabled Injured In Accident

A man on a wheelchair was hit by a vehicle in Bristol yesterday afternoon.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the intersection of Center and Foley Streets after authorities received reports of an accident in the area. At approximately 1:40 p.m., a disabled man on a wheelchair was hit by a passing Kia Sportage. The victim sustained injuries and was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. The Kia swerved off the roadway after hitting the pedestrian, crashing into a utility pole in the process. The driver was not injured. Crews from Eversource were called in to repair the damaged pole. The crash is currently under investigation. More information will be released as they become available.

Pedestrian accidents have to be investigated thoroughly to determine if reckless behavior, DUI or negligence are involved. In cases where any of these factors can be established, injured parties can consult their legal counsel to determine their best course of action.

Stamford – Supreme Court Ruling On Pedestrian Accident

The state Supreme Court just gave a ruling related to a decade-old pedestrian case in Stamford.

Back on December 3, 2009, now 54-year-old Brenda Snell was walking on the sidewalk along Stillwater Avenue when she was hit and dragged by a stolen car driven by then 17-year-old Deondre Bowden. Prior to the hit, Bowden stole the vehicle after it was left unattended, with its engine running, by cab driver Johnley Sanival. In 2015, Snell filed a civil case against Norwalk Yellow Cab, the owner of the stolen vehicle that hit her. The jury in that case voted against Snell, which prompted her to elevate the case to the higher court. The details of the recent Supreme Court ruling revolved around the proximate and superseding causes of Snell’s injuries: Bowden’s reckless behavior (stealing the car and hitting Snell), or Sanival’s negligence (leaving the car running/with keys inside). Bowden was subsequently sentenced to jail for various charges related to the incident. Snell’s legal team is now focused on establishing a significant level of responsibility/liability on the part of the cab driver (Sanival) and owner of the vehicle (Norwalk Yellow Cab).

Legal experts are better equipped to analyze/study the details related to this recent ruling. That said, following this case is beneficial to motorists and pedestrians because it highlights many of the circumstances that surround road incidents that result in physical injuries. We need to be aware of the legal processes, as well as our rights and options, if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations.

Derby – Senior Killed In Pedestrian Accident

A senior resident was killed in Derby last Monday morning.

A few minutes after 7:00 a.m., 85-year-old Angelina Borelli of Seymour Avenue was hit by a vehicle on Ninth Street. Emergency crews quickly arrived at the scene and transported Borelli to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the vehicle immediately stopped and has cooperated with police. Borelli was a member of a well-known political and business family in Derby. The case remains under investigation.

Pedestrian accidents like this have to be investigated thoroughly to determine if negligence or reckless behavior was involved. Suffice it to say, if any of these factors are established, victims or their families can talk to legal experts to determine the best way of finding closure after these unfortunate events.

Authorities responded to reports of an accident on Ella Grasso Boulevard (Route 10) and discovered a 42-year-old man who was killed after two vehicles hit him.

Hartford – Hit-And-Run Incident Update

Authorities have released more information regarding a recent pedestrian incident in Hartford.

55-year-old Sharlene Mansfield was seriously hurt and eventually died after getting hit by a car in front of 404 Hillside Avenue. After acquiring video footage of the incident, officials have now identified the vehicle that hit Mansfield. A 2018 Hyundai Sonata, with license plate AU88355, was caught on camera traveling away from the accident site. The vehicle was recently reported missing/stolen in Ellington. Officials are still following leads related to the hit-and-run incident and will release more updates when appropriate.

Authorities investigating road incidents will always exhaust all avenues in bringing suspects/culprits to justice. It’s worth taking note of this because victims or their families also have various legal options at their disposal when involved in similar situations. Talking to a legal expert can also be beneficial in these cases.

Waterbury – Hit-And-Run Suspect Identified

The suspect of a recent pedestrian accident has surrendered herself to authorities in Waterbury yesterday.

26-year-old Dominique Caraway of Naugatuck is currently facing several charges in connection to a recent incident where a 69-year-old pedestrian was killed after being hit by a vehicle. Henry Pearson was crossing the roadway in front of 937 North Main Street when he was struck by a vehicle driven by Caraway. He sustained serious head injuries and died soon after. Caraway initially reported her car as stolen to avoid apprehension but eventually surrendered herself to local police. She has been charged with reckless driving, tampering with evidence, falsely reporting a motor vehicle theft, and evading responsibility for a crash resulting in death.

This case highlights the processes and circumstances surrounding many hit-and-run incidents. It’s important to note that victims of these events (or their families) also have options they can explore, including filing for damages if their legal counsel deems it appropriate.
