Washington – Severe Injuries In Crash
Authorities responded to reports of a seriously hurt motorist in Washington yesterday afternoon.
At approximately 2:50 p.m., fire and EMS crews arrived at the intersection of Scofield Hill and Popple Swamp Roads after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, a still-unidentified man, but described as a person in his 30s, was involved in an accident. The victim sustained serious head and leg injuries in the incident and was immediately transported to Danbury Hospital for treatment. The crash site was blocked off to allow investigators to collect evidence — no word yet on the status of their investigation. This post will be updated as soon as officials release more information.
Authorities would typically withhold information temporarily, such as the identities of victims, in incidents resulting in serious or fatal injuries. This will allow officials to contact victims’ families or next of kin, as well as allowing investigators to do their work as effectively as they can. Suffice it to say, identifying culprits and bringing these parties to justice would always be their primary goals. It’s also important for us to remember our legal rights and options if ever we are involved in similar situations. We are never alone in these scenarios, and there would always be experts who can help us find closure.
