Bethany – Fatal Truck Accident

A motorist was killed in a truck accident in Bethany last Tuesday.

At around 5:00 p.m., authorities received word of a crash on Amity Road. Responders dispatched to the area discovered an accident that resulted in one fatality. 60-year-old James Skaarva was attempting to cross Route 63 when he was struck by a truck with a snowplow. Skaarva sustained critical injuries and died on the spot. The driver of the pickup truck, 63-year-old Henry Sarbieski, immediately stopped and has cooperated with officials. The case is currently under investigation, and authorities are asking witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
