Middletown – Multiple Injuries In Head-On Accident

Several people were hospitalized following a head-on crash in Middletown yesterday morning.

The crash occurred on Washington Street (Route 66), between Old Mill Road and Bernie O’Rourke Drive. According to officials, at least two motorists, including a pregnant woman, were transported to the hospital by crash responders. The incident forced the closure of the roadway to allow cleanup crews to remove all obstructions. The area has since been cleared, and authorities are currently investigating the incident. No word yet on hit-and-run, DUI, or the exact number of affected motorists. This post will be updated with new info as they become available.

Road closures are typically strong indicators of the severity of many accidents. These crash sites have to be scoured for evidence before they are cleared, making this process crucial in identifying suspects or causes. Obviously, motorists exhibiting negligent or reckless behavior have to be taken off the road. What’s less obvious are the legal avenues people can pursue if they are injured in road incidents. Consulting legal experts is always a good move in terms of taking stock of our situation and creating an appropriate course of action.

Willimantic – Pedestrian Hit By Vehicle

A local resident was hit by a passing vehicle in Willimantic last Tuesday evening.

Reports of the incident came in at approximately 7:13 p.m. and prompted authorities to dispatch responders to the intersection of Main Street (Route 66) and Mansfield Avenue. Upon arriving they discovered a 57-year-old man who was hit by a car while attempting to cross the roadway. Paramedics immediately transported the victim to Windham Community Memorial Hospital, after which he was airlifted by LifeStar to another hospital for treatment of serious injuries. The identity of the victim has yet to be disclosed pending an investigation. Updates will be released when appropriate.

All cities and towns in the state have provisions/regulations protecting the safety of pedestrians, so this case highlights the need to identify accident causes/culprits promptly so that issues can be addressed and road safety improved for everyone. There have been instances where negligence or reckless behavior has resulted in injuries, so we would be best served by taking note of these factors if ever we are involved in similar situations.

Columbia – Motorists In Crash Identified

State officials just released the identities of people involved in last Sunday’s motorcycle accident in Columbia.

33-year-old Gordon Reynolds was riding his Honda motorcycle east on Route 66 (Middletown Road) when he collided with a Honda Civic traveling west and attempting to make a left turn onto Pine Street. The driver of the Honda, 37-year-old Eric Ryan Millette of Columbia, sustained minor injuries, while Reynolds was thrown off his motorcycle and taken to St. Francis Hospital (by LifeStar) for treatment of serious injuries. The crash is still under investigation. Officials continue to encourage anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

LifeStar support is typically requested when accidents involve serious or critical injuries, among other possibilities. Officials handling this case have yet to identify its cause. Suffice it to say, if they discover negligence, DUI or reckless behavior, injured parties may have the option of filing for compensation/damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.

Middletown – Rollover Accident With Multiple Injuries

Two vehicles rolled over after a collision in Middletown last Friday evening.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Main Street (Route 66) and Hartford Avenue, near the Arrigoni Bridge. A 2002 Toyota Avalon was attempting a right turn from Hartford Avenue to northbound Main Street when it crossed the median onto the southbound side, colliding with a 2015 Mercedes-Benz that was traveling south on Main Street. Both vehicles rolled over from the collision. Emergency crews had to extricate the driver of the Toyota before being transported to St. Francis Hospital for further evaluation and treatment. The driver of the Mercedes-Benz sustained minor injuries and was brought to Middlesex Hospital but has since been discharged. The accident is still being investigated by authorities. The identities of the victims have yet to be disclosed.

In this case, both involved parties were injured in the accident, so identifying the culprit will be challenging but should be the priority of investigators. Having said that, if negligence, DUI or reckless behavior/driving can be established, then aggrieved parties can file for damages/compensation.
