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.
An investigation is continuing into a Connecticut crash that left a school dean dead on March 25. Authorities say that sun glare may have contributed to the fatal car accident. An inspection has shown that the victim's 2000 Saab did not have any mechanical defects, and several other factors have also been ruled out.
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.
