Shelton – Truck-Car Collision

A car and a gas truck figured in a crash in Shelton last Saturday afternoon.

Emergency responders arrived at the intersection of Leavenworth (Route 110) and Indian Well Roads and discovered a collision between a car and a truck carrying propane. A utility pole was also heavily damaged after it was hit by the truck. At least one motorist was trapped inside the car and had to be extricated by firefighters. The victim sustained injuries and was taken to the hospital for treatment. Authorities have yet to describe the status of other motorists involved in the incident pending an investigation. Local road crews and representatives from United Illuminating have since started repairing all damaged structures in the crash site.

It is likely that, in the absence of any vehicle defect/failure, this type of crash could be caused by reckless or negligent behavior. Of course, authorities will explore all possibilities when investigating these cases so that responsible parties can be made liable. Suspects/culprits can face charges filed either by the state or by individuals injured in these road incidents.

Shelton – Rush-Hour Highway Crash

A vehicle crash blocked off a portion of the highway in Shelton late yesterday afternoon.

State and local authorities received reports of the crash at 5:49 p.m. Responders were quickly sent to the northbound lanes of Route 8 and discovered an accident that occurred less than a quarter of a mile before Exit 14 (Kneen Street). The exact number of vehicles and motorists involved in the incident has yet to be disclosed, but authorities requested fire and EMS support on-site. A section of the highway was blocked for about half an hour while injured parties were tended to and debris was cleared from the scene. The crash is now under investigation. More details will follow.

Cleanup operations are important in processing crash sites, simply because leftover debris can cause additional accidents and injuries — there have been instances of this happening in the past.

These processes will also allow injured parties to pursue their own legal avenues in cases where negligence is involved.

Shelton – Gas Leak After Vehicle Accident

Yesterday, May 20, a car accident caused a gas leak in Shelton.

Shelton police reported a gas leak on River Road that prompted an evacuation of businesses in the vicinity of River Road and Constitution Boulevard. Police Lt. Robert Kozlowsky said they had to close down River Road between Murphy’s Lane and Petremont Lane, making way for respondents to repair the gas leak and secure the area. The leak started when apparently a car rolled over on River Road, just in front of Riverdale Diner, hitting what authorities believe was a vent pipe. The resulting leak prompted the emergency response. Additional details about the car accident or people injured in the incident have yet to be provided by officials.

This is an uncommon case where a car accident also caused property damage, utility equipment in this example. Regardless of the causes of these types of accidents, people who are injured by these events can file for personal injury claims with the help of legal experts.
