Driver's reckless actions result in multiple-vehicle accident

Most Connecticut drivers have likely at one time or another witnessed or encountered another driver who was driving aggressively or erratically. Drivers who engage in dangerous driving behaviors endanger not only their lives, but also those of other drivers, passengers and pedestrians. A recent crash along Connecticut's Interstate 95 illustrates this point and proves how the actions of one driver can adversely impact the lives of many.

The accident occurred around 11 a.m. under normal driving conditions. At this time, a 28-year-old man was speeding and driving erratically. As his car weaved through traffic, he crashed into the back of another vehicle. The force of the collision and speed at which both vehicles were traveling resulted in the vehicle that was struck veering out of control and rolling.

The rolling vehicle then struck another car setting off a chain reaction in which at least four vehicles were involved. Miraculously, no one was killed in the multiple-vehicle crash. Three people, however, suffered serious injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. One of those individuals injured and hospitalized was an infant.

Several other drivers and passengers who were involved in the crash were treated at the accident scene for minor injuries. Police have arrested and charged the 28-year-old driver who caused the crash. In addition to criminal charges, those individuals who suffered serious injuries as a result of the man's negligent actions may also choose to take legal action.

In cases where an individual suffers injuries as a result of another driver's negligence, a personal injury lawsuit may be an appropriate means to recovering damages related to injuries, lost wages and medical expenses.
