Man struck by tracter-trailer after leaving parked vehicle

A 25-year-old Bristol woman is facing charges for operating a vehicle while driving under the influence. Police state that her actions on Interstate 495 allegedly played a role in the death of a 28-year-old male passenger that was riding the woman's 2006 Scion XA.

Connecticut accident on I-91 sends 5 to hospital

A two-car accident that occurred around 2:30 a.m. on February 14 is reportedly the cause of an almost six-hour road closure that happened on Interstate 91 in Connecticut on Saturday. The accident is said to be responsible for sending five people to the hospital.

Motorcycle crash kills 78-year-old; drug intoxication blamed

A Connecticut man is facing serious criminal charges after he allegedly killed a man in North Branford. The driver, age 22, is accused of causing the motorcycle crash when he rear-ended the 78-year-old victim's vehicle. That younger man is accused of drug-related offenses, and officers believe that he may have been intoxicated on a variety of substances at the time of the collision. The defendant is also accused of vehicular manslaughter and negligent homicide, among other violations.

Mother of decorated officer killed in pedestrian versus car crash

A woman with 51 previous criminal convictions has been accused of causing a fatal car accident that took the life of a 70-year-old Connecticut woman on Easter. The defendant, age 45, is accused of driving away from the scene of the car accident. The victim in this case was the mother of a highly decorated member of the Stamford police force. Officers report that the at-fault driver was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

Teen killed in pedestrian accident reportedly a talented dancer

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.

Man sentenced to prison for fatal car crash

Accidents happen, but striking a person with a vehicle - then backing up over him and leaving the scene - is incomprehensible. The victim in this case died, but the family may have finally gotten a bit of closure when the driver, a 32-year-old Connecticut man, received a sentence of five years in prison and another five years of probation.

Driver charged after fatal motorcycle accident in Cheshire

Depending on the facts of the particular case, a driver whose negligence caused injuries to another party can be held legally accountable in two ways: in civil court and criminal court. A criminal conviction for a crime such as manslaughter can lead to jail time for the offender, but the family of the deceased victim may need to bring a wrongful death lawsuit to see the full measure of justice.
