Car accidents are always serious, often involving injuries to individuals. Some of the worst injuries are suffered when a vehicle hits a pedestrian. That is what happened recently when a car hit a man who was standing by a stopped vehicle.
Every time people are injured on Connecticut roads, it is tragic. It strikes many as particularly tragic when young children who have their whole lives before them are the ones seriously injured or killed. That was the case recently in a car crash in Waterford.
A woman accused of striking and seriously injuring a Connecticut state trooper will serve 18 months in custody for her role in the injurious crash. The woman's full sentence was for five years, but the remainder of that time is slated to be suspended, and she will spend three years on probation after her release. The woman accepted a plea deal in connection with the drunk driving accident.
A Connecticut driver has been arraigned after a serious drunk driving crash, during which her blood alcohol content was reportedly measured at more than three times the legal limit. The 31-year-old woman is accused of crashing into a store in Bridgeport, injuring three victims during the drunk driving accident. The woman's arraignment on those charges came just one day before she was slated to appear in court in connection with previous DUI charges.
Connecticut-based readers may remember a drunk driving accident that nearly cost a woman her life in 2007. Now, that drunk driving victim is working to prevent drunken people from driving. According to her story, she was struck by a drunk driver who clipped the left side of her vehicle; the truck she was in went out of control, and it rolled a number of times.
