Connecticut Supreme Court will rule on fatal truck crash

A runaway dump truck with brake failure careened down the mountain on Route 44 into Avon and crashed into 19 vehicles on July 29, 2005. Years later, on April 30, 2013, the state Supreme Court will hear the appeal of a seriously injured accident victim and the widow of a New Hartford man killed in the crash who sued the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

Drunk driving suspected for Preston death

Pedestrians are virtually unprotected against the size and force of vehicles. A fatal pedestrian accident in Preston, Connecticut on April 20, 2013 leading to the death of a U.S. Navy sailor waiting for a taxi is a vivid illustration of the lethal combination of impaired driving and pedestrians.

Settlement reached in Connecticut boat accident lawsuit

On April 4, the parties settled a multi-million dollar lawsuit in Bridgeport Superior Court. The plaintiff was seeking compensatory and punitive damages for the death of a passenger who was swept off of a powerboat traveling in the Caribbean Sea. A confidentiality agreement blocks disclosure of the settlement amount from the lawsuit, which was filed two years ago.

Speeding driver causes chain-reaction car collision

Speeding drivers are a threat to other motorists and pedestrians in Connecticut. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration attributed 39 fatalities to speeding motorists in the state in 2012. Authorities believe that excessive speed caused a car accident on Mar. 24 in Bridgeport. The accident injured four people and involved several other vehicles and a convenience store.
