Farmington – Two Fatalities In ATV Crash

Two riders died in an ATV crash in Farmington last Wednesday.

Officials have withheld the identities of two victims, a 71-year-old ATV rider and his 30-year-old son, who were involved in a crash at the Tilcon quarry along Colt Highway. According to authorities, at around 8:00 p.m., three riders on separate vehicles were negotiating a difficult section of the quarry when the two victims fell off a cliff. The third rider was not injured. Emergency responders quickly arrived, but the victims were pronounced dead at the crash site. Local police are currently investigating the incident and will release more information when appropriate.

This type of accident can be caused by different factors, and authorities will definitely study all possibilities so that accountability can be accurately assigned. There have been instances in the past where accidents were caused by faulty or defective equipment, so this possibility will also be studied. Suffice it to say, if investigators discover any form of negligence, the family of the victim (in this case) may have legal options that can be explored to help them find closure.

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.

East Hartford – Rush-Hour Vehicle Accident

Officials responded to a highway accident in East Hartford yesterday.

At approximately 4:51 p.m., authorities received reports of a crash on the eastbound lanes of I-84 and quickly sent responders to the area. According to reports, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in an accident about a quarter of a mile past Exit 58 that resulted in injuries. The accident forced the closure of a portion of the highway — all lanes have since been cleared. Medical personnel have already assisted motorists affected by the incident, though officials have yet to identify anyone pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more information.

Rush-hour accidents, particularly on highways, have to be cleared promptly to avoid collateral effects, such as heavy delays and the possibility of other collisions. Having said that, authorities will always focus on accurately identifying accident causes/culprits as quickly as they can. This can benefit aggrieved parties as establishing accountability could allow them to file for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the help of legal experts.

West Hartford – Vehicle Accident On Highway

An accident closed down a portion of the highway in West Hartford yesterday evening.

The crash was first reported at approximately 6:02 p.m. and officials immediately dispatched fire and EMS crews to the westbound side of I-84/Route 6. According to responders, a still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash about a quarter of a mile before Exit 41 (South Main Street). Road crews quickly cordoned off the scene to initiate cleanup operations and an investigation into the cause of the accident. All lanes were cleared about 40 minutes later. Authorities have withheld the identities of motorists involved pending an investigation. More information will be released when appropriate.

Highway accidents have to be processed and cleared quickly to avoid unnecessary delays while still allowing authorities to thoroughly investigate crash culprits/causes. It’s important to take note of this because if any form of negligence is established, injured motorists not responsible for these accidents may have options at their disposal. Consulting legal experts will help them determine their best course of action.

Bolton – Motorcycle Crash

A motorcyclist figured in a crash in Bolton yesterday.

Authorities responded to reports of a crash on Route 6 (Hop River Road) and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the area. They discovered a motorcycle that had crashed in the area, resulting in injuries. Route 6 was closed down at Notch Road to facilitate cleanup operations, as well as an investigation into the cause of the accident.

Brooklyn – Head-On Crash Victims Identified

Authorities in Brooklyn have released the identities of those involved in last Monday’s accident.

The head-on collision occurred at the intersection of Route 6 (Providence Road) and Prince Hill Road at approximately 6:05 a.m., severely damaging two vehicles. 51-year-old Tracy Desjardins of Plainfield was driving her 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe when she was struck by a 2005 Ford Taurus driven by 21-year-old Jahala Beaupre of Brooklyn. Desjardins was transported by emergency crews to Backus Family Health Center for minor injuries, while Beaupre was transported by LifeStar to Providence Hospital for serious injuries.
