Shelton – Highway Crash With Fatality

A motorist was killed in a highway crash in Shelton last Friday evening.

Authorities responded to reports of an accident on the southbound side of Route 8 and discovered a vehicle that had crashed near exit 12. According to officials, at approximately 6:15 p.m., a car with three occupants suddenly swerved off the highway, falling down an embankment before hitting a tree. The driver sustained critical injuries and was immediately transported by EMS crews to the hospital. One of the passengers sustained minor injuries, while the third occupant, identified as 20-year-old Jarvis Jones, was thrown off the vehicle and died in the hospital shortly after. A section of the highway was closed immediately following the incident but has since been reopened. The crash is currently under investigation. Authorities are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

Highway accidents can frequently result in serious injuries. Preventing future incidents depend on accurately identifying causes and addressing them. That said, victims of these unfortunate events (or their families) can consult legal experts to determine what course of action can help them find closure after these traumatic situations.

Bridgeport – Motorist Arrested In DUI Incident

A motorist was charged with DUI in Bridgeport yesterday.

33-year-old Lee Velasquez of Stillman Street was charged in connection to a June 24, 2018 incident where she was involved in a two-vehicle crash. Velasquez was driving in the area of the Route 8/25 junction when she collided with a vehicle driven by William Acevedo, Jr. of Bridgeport. Velasquez was discovered by emergency crews lying on the ground with multiple lacerations on her body. On the other hand, Acevedo, Jr. was trapped inside his vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters. Both were eventually brought to St. Vincent’s Medical Center where Acevedo, Jr. was diagnosed with multiple fractures, while Velasquez was treated for more serious injuries that left her paralyzed. The investigation that followed determined that Velasquez had a blood alcohol level that exceeded the legal limit. She was also not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The dangers of driving while intoxicated cannot be overstated, and this case highlights that. It’s important to note that we have legal avenues available to us if ever we are injured due to negligence, reckless behavior or DUI.

Watertown – Car Burst Into Flames After Crash

A motorist was killed in a fiery crash in Watertown last Saturday morning.

40-year-old Nicolas Chizinski was driving his BMW south on Route 8 (James W. Darcy Memorial Highway) when his vehicle swerved off its intended path and into a metal guardrail.
