Wallingford – Highway Crash With Multiple Injuries

Authorities responded to and investigated a highway crash in Wallingford yesterday.

Officials received reports of the incident and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the northbound side of Route 15. Responders discovered a multiple-vehicle crash that occurred between Exits 64 and 65. Multiple injuries were reported and EMS support was requested to assist everyone involved in the crash.

Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more info.

Road closures are sometimes required to allow responders to safety assist motorists involved in various road incidents. It also allows investigators to study and collect evidence which is imperative if culprits are to be brought to justice. Not only that, establishing liability will open various legal avenues that victims of these unfortunate events can explore. One of these options is seeking damages in cases where negligence has been discovered.

Wallingford – Highway Vehicle Accident

A highway accident in Wallingford yesterday morning resulted in delays and injuries.

Authorities responded to the northbound lanes of Route 15 after receiving reports of a crash at approximately 11:13 a.m. According to responders, the accident occurred about three-quarters of a mile past Exit 66 (Route 5). No word yet on the number of vehicles and motorists involved in the crash, but officials requested support from fire and EMS crews. The incident blocked a portion of the highway for about half an hour — all lanes have since been cleared of all obstructions.

Highway accidents are typically processed and cleared quickly, more so than in other locations, to avoid unwanted effects such as heavy delays and the risk of additional accidents. Of course, this is done without sacrificing other objectives, crash investigations in particular. This is important if culprits are to be brought to justice. Not only that, victims of these traumatic events may also pursue legal options that can help them find closure. Filing for damages/compensation is one way this can be achieved.

37-year-old Donald A. Carelli of Milford was riding his bike with another cyclist when he was hit and fatally wounded by a vehicle driven by 35-year-old Derek C. Fries near the intersection of Toelles and South Turnpike Roads. While Carelli was immediately brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital by emergency crews, he died a short time later. Authorities have since collected more evidence related to the crash. They are now pursuing additional leads that will provide a clearer picture of the accident.
