A teenage pedestrian died in a Connecticut car accident while she was walking with a group of friends in Ridgefield. The girl, age 15, was struck at about 9:30 p.m. on March 14, according to official reports. An investigation is ongoing in the pedestrian accident, but it appears that the driver simply did not see the victim because the teenager was wearing dark clothing while walking along the unlighted section of road. It is not yet clear whether the driver will face criminal charges for the auto-pedestrian accident.
When Connecticut festivalgoers congregate to see some of their favorite musical acts, few worry about the danger associated with auto-pedestrian accidents. A recent incident in Texas proves that pedestrian accidents can happen even on a road that has been closed off to the public. A 21-year-old driver in that state recently plowed through a crowd of revelers in an attempt to flee from police. Two people died and at least 23 were injured in the assault.
A man in Connecticut almost lost his life in an accident on I-95, but the responding teams were able to cut him out of his small SUV, which had re-ended a semi-truck. Surprisingly, the man lived to tell the tale.
A man from Stamford, Connecticut was involved in a deadly accident on the freeway. The two cars that were involved, his own and a small sedan, both ran off of the road during the accident, which is where they were found by the police after it was called in. The Stamford man's vehicle was still upright, but the sedan had flipped over onto its roof, causing extensive damage. It had also run into a bridge support pillar, making the accident far more violent for that car than the other, and the driver of that vehicle was killed.
