Stratford – Interstate Crash Victims Identified

Authorities have identified the victims of an August 8 highway crash in Stratford.

At approximately 9:17 p.m. a Honda Accord with three occupants was traveling south on I-95 crossing Stratford when it suddenly veered off the road, hitting a guardrail before falling down an embankment north of exit 30. 18-year-old Destiny Arriaga, a passenger in the vehicle, sustained serious injuries and was immediately taken by emergency crews to Bridgeport Hospital where she later died. 17-year-old Jose Carpio, the driver of the car, and 18-year-old Michael Jackson both sustained injuries and were also brought to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment. Carpio and Jackson have been listed as stable. The crash is still under investigation. Officials will release more updates when appropriate.

As this incident is still under investigation, authorities have yet to accurately identify the cause of the crash. That said, if reckless behavior, DUI or negligence is established in this and other similar cases, victims or their families can consult legal experts to determine their best course of action.

Stratford – Highway Accident

Authorities responded to a single-vehicle accident in Stratford yesterday.

The incident occurred on the northbound side of I-95 crossing Stratford, just after exit 32. Emergency crews quickly arrived at the scene to assist those injured in the crash. The accident blocked the left lane of the highway, but officials were able to clear the scene just 45 minutes later. The crash is currently under investigation, and authorities will release more information about the incident when they become available.

Motorists traveling on any road in the state can rely on authorities to quickly process and clear any road incident. This is worth mentioning particularly when you consider officials still have to investigate accident scenes to identify causes. That said, once they establish accountability, and if any form of negligence is discovered, injured/aggrieved parties may have the option of filing for damages when deemed appropriate.

Stratford – 13 Injured In Head-On Collision

A head-on collision injured several people in Stratford last Saturday.

Two minivans were traveling near Main Street and River Road when they collided head-on. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and discovered 13 people hurt in the accident. Around half of those injured were children. According to responders, it took them about 30 minutes to extricate three victims from their vehicles. 12 victims were taken to Bridgeport Hospital, while one was brought to Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital. A firefighter was also injured while working at the crash site. The accident is currently under investigation.

It’s important for accident responders to ensure the safety of everyone involved in road incidents, so extricating trapped motorists is always a priority.

Stratford – Tractor-Trailer Collides With Car

A semi-trailer crashes into a car in Stratford late yesterday evening.

The incident occurred on Lordship Boulevard (Route 113) a few minutes past 10:00 p.m. A tractor-trailer was traveling on Route 113 towards Stratford Avenue when it collided with a brand new Hyundai Sonata that had just come off exit 30 of I-95.

The identities of those involved have yet to be disclosed by authorities pending an investigation of the crash.

Road incidents involving heavy trucks or tractor-trailers almost always result in heavy damage and serious injuries, so investigators are always diligent in accurately identifying the causes of these accidents.
