A pedestrian was injured in a road crash in Rocky Hill late Monday afternoon.
At around 4:37 p.m., a pedestrian was hit by a passing vehicle near the intersection of Trinity Ridge and New Britain Avenue. The still-unidentified victim sustained serious injuries and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. The driver of the striking vehicle stopped at the scene and has cooperated with authorities. The incident temporarily closed a significant section of Route 160 to allow investigators to collect evidence. The roadway has since been reopened. Authorities are expected to release more info regarding the status of this case when appropriate.
Pedestrians rarely escape collisions with vehicles without injuries, and that makes identifying the causes of these accidents extremely important if future cases are to be avoided. It’s particularly important to determine if reckless behavior, DUI, or negligence could be involved, and these factors may open various avenues that the state and injured parties can pursue. Legal experts can help us understand what these options are and how to best explore them.
