Car collisions happen every day, including on Connecticut roads. Of course, the most serious car accidents are the ones in which someone is injured or killed. If injuries or deaths are alleged to be the fault of another person involved, criminal charges can be filed against that person. That may prove to be the case in a crash that happened in the city of North Windham, Connecticut.
It is common for accidents to involve multiple family members, for example when they are traveling together in the same car. However, it is rare for family members to be in separate, unrelated drunk driving accidents less than 24 hours apart. It's even more rare when the accidents involve twin sisters, like a recent set of crashes did.
Collisions on roads can happen for any number of reasons. Sometimes, a car accident happens because one driver has a moment of not fully keeping their attention on the road and other cars around them. That seems to be the case when one car hit another Saturday morning.
Fourteen people were injured when a bus driver struck a tree on Stanwich Road in Connecticut. The bus occupants, including a 74-year-old driver, were all transported to local hospitals in Greenwich and Stamford. Some suffered serious injuries, but authorities say that no one suffered life-threatening wounds in the May 28 car accident.
