There was a major accident in downtown Bridgeport last Saturday.
The crash occurred at around 5:40 p.m. at the intersection of Fairfield Avenue (Route 130) and Courtland Street where two vehicles figured in a crash. Firefighters arrived at the scene immediately after the incident to assist parties involved. Additional units/equipment were requested at around 5:48 p.m. because one driver was reportedly trapped inside his vehicle and had to be extricated by authorities. The driver was freed at around 5:59 p.m. Drivers of both vehicles sustained injuries from the incident.
A serious crash like this one needs the attention of authorities to determine accountability. If DUI, negligence or reckless driving can be established, then aggrieved parties, with the help of legal counsel, can file for a personal injury claim.
