Waterbury – Crash Still Being Investigated
Authorities are still investigating a crash that killed one and injured two others in Waterbury.
The incident occurred on Berkeley Avenue at around 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the 8th of May. Emergency crews quickly arrived at the scene and discovered a crashed SUV that was traveling south when the incident happened. The vehicle swerved into a parked car and rolled over several times before coming to a stop. The driver, an 18-year-old girl, died on the spot, while her two companions, another 18-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy, sustained serious injuries and had to be transported to the hospital for treatment. The identities of those involved have not been disclosed by officials. Authorities continue to ask anyone with information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.
With the help of witnesses and anyone who can provide information, open cases like this one will eventually be completed by authorities. It’s important to take note of these types of cases because establishing accountability will help victims and their families achieve closure. It’s also imperative to determine liabilities because under Connecticut laws, injuries or deaths caused by negligence, reckless behavior or DUI can entitle involved parties to file compensation claims.
