Seymour – Crash Update

Authorities just released more info regarding last Wednesday’s crash in Seymour.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., 65-year-old Marguerite Jachimowski was driving her 2005 Mercury Sable on Holbrook Road when her foot got stuck under the brake pedal as the vehicle approached Jacko Drive. Because of this, her vehicle was forced off the roadway and into an embankment. Jachimowski sustained serious injuries in the crash and was trapped inside her car. She was eventually extricated by responding firefighters and treated by medical personnel. The incident is still under investigation. More updates will be provided when appropriate.

Evidence already available in this case seems to point to driver error as the cause. But the fact that the driver’s foot was trapped under the brake pedal and why that happened in the first place merits a more comprehensive investigation of the incident. There have been many instances of product defects/failures causing accidents in the past, so these factors should not be overlooked despite the relative condition of the involved vehicle and the age of the operator. Whatever the outcome, if any form of negligence not associated with the driver is discovered, she (and other motorists in similar situations) may have legal options at her disposal, avenues that can help her cope and eventually find closure.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life. 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.

Seymour – Vehicle Crash With Entrapment

A vehicle fell down an embankment in Seymour yesterday afternoon.

The incident occurred near the intersection of Holbrook Road and Jacko Drive and was reported to officials at approximately 4:40 p.m. According to responders, a vehicle with an unspecified number of occupants was traveling in the area when it suddenly swerved off the roadway, falling down an embankment before coming to a stop. A motorist was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters. The victim has since been tended to by medical personnel. No word yet on the current status of the victim and whether or not other vehicles were involved in the incident. The crash is currently under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more info.

Vehicle entrapment is typically an accurate measure of the severity of accidents and requires a quick response from emergency crews. Identifying the causes of these incidents is extremely important because preventing accidents is, obviously, an important goal for state and local officials. These things said, victims not responsible for these crashes should be aware of their legal rights and options, particularly in cases where negligence could be involved. Victims/injured parties are advised to consult legal experts to determine an appropriate course of action post-accident.

Seymour – Motorist Apprehended In Crash

A motorist involved in a crash in Seymour last week was just apprehended and issued an infraction.

Authorities have yet to disclose the identities of two motorists involved in a recent crash on Route 34 but just reported issuing an infraction to one of the victims for failure to drive right. The crash occurred on Route 34 (Roosevelt Drive), near its intersection with Jefferson Street. The suspect, a Norwalk resident, was driving east on that road when his vehicle swerved onto the opposite lane, hitting another vehicle. Both drivers sustained injuries in the collision and were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Updates will be provided as soon as more information becomes available.

Road accidents can be caused by different factors, and we can rely on authorities to accurately identify these culprits as shown in this case. Beyond this, victims of these unfortunate events may also have other options that can be explored with legal experts, including filing for damages/compensation if reckless behavior or negligence is established in any of these scenarios.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life.

Seymour – Crash Fatality Identified

The victim of a recent intersection crash in Seymour has been identified.

73-year-old Francis Markey of Beacon Falls was riding his motorcycle north on North Street (Route 721) when he collided with a vehicle traveling west on Route 67 (New Haven Road). Markey sustained critical injuries in the crash and was immediately brought to the hospital where he eventually died. The driver of the vehicle was not harmed but was still sent to the hospital for evaluation. The case is still being investigated. Officials continue to ask anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

This case remains open, so we have yet to know the specific cause of the crash. Suffice it to say, if investigators discover negligence or reckless behavior, the victim’s family will have the option of filing for damages if deemed appropriate by their legal counsel.

Seymour – Fatality In Motorcycle Accident

A motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Seymour yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 2:15 p.m., a motorcycle driven by a still unidentified person crashed near the intersection of North Avenue (Route 721) and New Haven Road (Route 67). According to police, the rider sustained serious injuries in the accident and died shortly after from those injuries. Officials cordoned off the accident scene to facilitate an investigation of the incident. The identity of the victim will be provided when appropriate. Authorities will also release more information as they become available.

In many single-vehicle accidents without immediately apparent causes, drivers are considered as primary suspects. That said, investigators will also look at other possibilities, such as product/vehicle defects, as these factors have resulted in accidents in the past. Whatever the conclusion, if authorities establish negligence in any of these cases, victims or their families have various options they can explore with their legal counsel.

Seymour – Truck Crash With Injuries

A semi crashed on the highway in Seymour last Tuesday evening.

The incident occurred on the southbound side of Route 8 (Ansonia-Deby-Shelton Expressway) crossing Seymour, near exit 20. A tractor-trailer was involved in an accident that punctured both of its fuel tanks and injured its driver. Emergency crews immediately transported the victim to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment, while various ancillary crews performed cleanup after the truck leaked diesel fuel onto the highway. The case is still being investigated by authorities.

Truck accidents like this one can be caused by many factors, so investigators will always study all possibilities in these cases. Having said that, if product/vehicle defects or any form of negligence can be established, injured parties may be entitled to compensation under appropriate circumstances.

Seymour – Tractor-Trailer Crash On Highway

A multi-vehicle crash happened in Seymour yesterday afternoon.

The incident occurred on the southbound side of Route 8 (Ansonia-Derby-Shelton Expressway), between exits 22 and 20. At approximately 2:15 p.m., reports came in of an accident involving a tractor-trailer and other unspecified vehicles along that route. Injuries were reported, and the left and center lanes of the highway were closed immediately following the crash. The scene has since been cleared. The identities of those involved and additional information will be released by authorities when appropriate.

Highway accidents involving large vehicles almost always involve injuries, so due diligence is required in establishing liability/accountability. Identifying the culprit is important because in cases where injuries were caused by negligence, victims can file for damage/compensation claims.

Seymour – DUI Causes Several Injuries

Two people were injured by a man driving under the influence in Seymour last Wednesday evening.

Local officials responded to a three-vehicle accident that occurred on Great Hill Road (Route 334) at approximately 8:30 p.m. 36-year-old Deonte Glass of Georgia was driving his Dodge Ram pickup truck north on that route when his vehicle crossed the center line and hit a Ford Mustang on the southbound lane. The truck then continued north and hit another vehicle, a Toyota Prius, also headed south. The driver of the Mustang was not injured. The two occupants of the Prius sustained injuries and were immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. Glass was apprehended by authorities and given a sobriety test, which he failed. He was arrested and is now facing charges of failure to drive right and DUI.

Injuries caused by negligence, reckless behavior or, in this case, DUI are strong grounds for filing compensation/damage claims. Consulting a legal expert in this field should inform us of our rights and options as motorists if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations.

Seymour – Serious Injuries After Road Crash

A serious vehicle accident happened in Seymour late yesterday evening.

The incident occurred on Great Hill Road (Route 334) at around 9:00 p.m. Authorities have arrived at the scene and immediately transported two people to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. The victims have yet to be identified. Local officials are investigating the crash and will update the public when appropriate.

This recent incident highlights how authorities across the state quickly respond to reports of road accidents. It’s important to take note of this because once accountability/liability is established by officials, people who are injured in these situations can, in appropriate circumstances or when negligence is involved, file for damage/compensation claims.
