Westport – Fatal Pedestrian Incident

A local man was killed in an intersection accident in Westport yesterday afternoon.

25-year-old Peter Greenberg of Westport was walking near the intersection of North Sasco Commons and Bulkley Avenue North when he was struck by a vehicle. He sustained critical injuries and was immediately transported to Norwalk Hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The still-unidentified driver of the vehicle immediately stopped and has since cooperated with officials. The roadway was closed for several hours while investigators collected evidence. The crash site has since been cleared. Authorities are encouraging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have any relevant info to contact them as soon as possible.

Despite best efforts by officials and local communities, fatal pedestrian incidents still occur. Identifying the causes of these accidents is as important as ever — culprits must be brought to justice. While in many cases, these are just accidents, there have also been incidents caused by reckless or negligent behavior. If these factors are discovered, victims (or their next of kin) should be informed of their legal options and granted additional opportunities to find closure.

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.

Bridgeport – DUI Suspect Arrested After Pedestrian Crash

An intoxicated driver was apprehended following a pedestrian incident in Bridgeport early Friday morning.

At approximately 1:30 a.m., 39-year-old Jose David Alamo-Diaz was attempting to cross Barnum Avenue when he was hit by a 2015 Volkswagen Passat traveling west. Alamo-Diaz sustained critical injuries in the incident and was immediately transported to Bridgeport Hospital where he was pronounced dead soon after. Responding police officials identified the driver of the vehicle as 27-year-old Moniece McNeil of Bridgeport. After an initial evaluation of McNeil, she was arrested and charged with having insufficient insurance and second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle. Authorities continue to collect evidence related to the incident and are asking anyone with relevant info to contact them as soon as possible.

Charges of second-degree manslaughter are usually reserved for individuals suspected of driving under the influence. Suffice it to say, culprits must be made accountable for these unfortunate events. Victims or their families/next of kin should also be aware that they can pursue various legal options related to these incidents. With assistance from legal experts, these avenues can help them cope and find closure.

Berlin – Victim In Pedestrian Crash Identified

Authorities just released the identity of last Wednesday’s pedestrian incident in Berlin.

At around 10:40 p.m., 58-year-old Janine Wiktor of New Britain was walking in front of 319 New Britain Road when she was hit by a passing vehicle. Wiktor died due to her injuries soon after. The driver of the vehicle fled the area before officials arrived. Officials are currently investigating the incident and pursuing all leads that may help them find the vehicle and apprehend the suspect. Possible witnesses are encouraged to contact local authorities as soon as possible.

In many cases, reports/leads from the public can prove invaluable in locating suspects/culprits, particularly in instances of hit-and-run. That said, victims of these incidents, or their families, should be aware of what their options are and what they could be entitled to post-accident. Consulting legal experts can prove very useful in these situations.

Bridgeport – Pedestrian Crash

A pedestrian was hit by a car at an intersection in Bridgeport yesterday.

Authorities were alerted to an incident at the intersection of Wood and Cleveland Avenues. At around 5:44 p.m., responders/EMS crews arrived at the accident scene and immediately transported the injured pedestrian to the hospital for treatment. The driver of the car stayed at the crash site and has cooperated with officials. No word yet on the current status of the victim. This incident is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as more info becomes available.

It’s only appropriate for EMS crews to be automatically dispatched to any road incident involving pedestrians, simply because this type of accident almost always result in injuries. It’s also prudent to investigate these incidents as quickly as possible so that responsible parties can be brought to justice. These are obvious procedures/steps that follow pedestrian cases. What’s less apparent are the options that victims of these situations can explore and pursue. Consulting legal experts can help aggrieved parties make sense of options that can help them find closure.

Berlin – Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Crash

A pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run incident in Berlin late Wednesday evening.

Local authorities are currently investigating an incident that occurred in front of 319 New Britain Road. At approximately 10:40 p.m., officials responded to reports of the incident and discovered a pedestrian who was killed after getting hit by an unidentified vehicle. Instead of stopping, the driver of the car fled the area. The victim’s identity has yet to be released as family members/next of kin are still being contacted. Authorities are now looking for the suspect and are asking anyone who may have relevant info to contact them as soon as possible.

Hitting a pedestrian while operating a vehicle is already a serious offense, and instances of hit-and-run will only make things worse for suspects. Authorities are expected to exhaust all means to establish accountability and bring these culprits to justice. This process can also benefit injured parties because they may have the option of filing for damages in specific cases and with the help of expert legal counsel.

Westport – Road Worker Hit By Car

A construction worker was struck by a vehicle in Westport last Tuesday evening.

A few minutes past 9:00 p.m., a road construction worker was on-duty in front of 300 Post Road West when he was struck by a passing vehicle. He sustained serious injuries and was transported by responders to Norwalk Hospital for treatment. The driver of the car immediately stopped and is cooperating with authorities. Several state and local agencies responded to the incident and temporarily closed the roadway around the accident site to investigate its cause. The roadway has since been cleared. The case is still under active investigation. More details, including the identity of all parties involved, will be released when appropriate.

Pedestrians hit by various vehicles almost always sustain injuries, though in some cases liability can be challenging to establish. That said, victims can be assured that authorities will exhaust all means to identify the causes/culprits of these incidents. Also, victims need to be aware of their legal rights and options in cases where negligence has been discovered. Talking to legal experts can help them make sense of these options.

At approximately 6:16 p.m., local officials were alerted to an incident at the intersection of Park and Shelton Streets.

It’s only appropriate for authorities to cordon off accident sites so that involved parties can be effectively assisted and crash evidence properly collected.

Danbury – Pedestrian Injured By Truck

A man was hit by a passing pickup truck in Danbury last Friday afternoon.

A few minutes before 5:00 p.m., reports came in of an accident at the intersection of Wildman and Chestnut Streets. Emergency crews were dispatched to the area and discovered 56-year-old Kevin Woulfe of Danbury injured after a pickup truck hit him. According to officials, Woulfe was walking north on Wildman Street when a 2010 Ford F-150, driven by 29-year-old Mauricio Brito-Santos of Danbury, attempted to make a turn at the intersection, hitting Woulfe in the process. The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was taken to Danbury Hospital for treatment. Authorities have yet to determine the cause of the incident and are still investigating it. They are also asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.

Authorities handling this case have yet to discover any evidence suggesting any ill-intent on the part of any involved party. That said, investigators will continue to study the case until accountability has been accurately established. Achieving this goal will not only bring culprits to justice but also allow injured parties to seek damages in incidents where negligence, DUI or reckless behavior have been discovered.
