New Canaan – Rollover Crash Fatality

A local man was killed in an accident in New Canaan last Sunday evening.

Authorities quickly dispatched emergency crews to Route 7 after an accident that occurred at approximately 10:20 p.m. According to officials, 46-year-old Matthew Holderman was traveling north on Route 7 when his vehicle suddenly swerved to the right shoulder near Sand Road. The vehicle then struck several roadside structures before crashing into a utility pole and rolling over. Holderman sustained critical injuries in the crash and was trapped inside his vehicle. He was later pronounced dead. Officials are currently investigating the crash and are asking anyone who may have witnessed it to contact them as soon as possible.

As this case is still under investigation, we have yet to be presented with evidence suggesting another party/vehicle caused the crash. In road incidents with no immediately apparent causes, investigators will look at, among other factors, product defects as possible culprits. Suffice it to say, injuries caused by any form of negligence can enable victims to file for damages if deemed appropriate by legal experts.

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.

Cromwell – Highway Crash Update

Authorities have just identified the victim of last Tuesday’s crash in Cromwell.

36-year-old Diego Rivera was driving a tractor-trailer, traveling south on I-91, when he collided with another vehicle near Exit 21. A pickup truck driven by 62-year-old Assunto Cecere-Palazzo suddenly swerved and hit Rivera’s vehicle, forcing the semi to hit a guardrail before falling down an embankment. Rivera sustained serious injuries and had to be airlifted (LifeStar) to St. Francis Hospital for treatment. Cecere-Pallazo also sustained injuries after his truck hit a guardrail and was also transported to the hospital. The accident remains under investigation. Officials are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

The details about this case already available to the public highlight many of the circumstances that precede road accidents that result in serious injuries. Authorities will always investigate these incidents thoroughly so that they can gather information that can help prevent future accidents. It’s also important to note that any instance of reckless driving, DUI or negligence can entitle victims/aggrieved parties to compensation/damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.

Cromwell – Overturned Semi In Highway Crash

An accident closed down I-91 in Cromwell yesterday afternoon.

The crash occurred on the southbound side of the highway, between exits 21 and 20. According to authorities, a tractor-trailer overturned, resulting in heavy delays that lasted several hours.

Manchester – Two-Vehicle Highway Crash

A section of I-84 was closed following a crash in Manchester last Saturday morning.

The rollover accident occurred on the eastbound side of I-84 crossing Manchester, just after exit 63. Two vehicles were involved in the rollover crash that prompted officials to close down the highway around the accident scene. Medical crews have already attended to those injured in the incident; critical injuries were reported in the crash. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and will release updates as they become available.

The higher risk of injuries makes it important for authorities to respond to highway/interstate incidents as quickly as possible.
