Victims injured, killed in motor vehicle accident

A recent accident injured six people, one of whom died from her injuries. The head-on collision was so serious that two helicopters were called in to transport victims to the hospital. The motor vehicle accident also temporarily shut down a portion of a Connecticut state highway.

Police say that a 33-year-old woman who apparently caused the accident was the only person not injured. For reasons that are not entirely clear, she swerved out of her lane and into the path of oncoming traffic on Route 4. A 70-year-old man was driving the oncoming car, which she then hit head-on.

All three passengers in the wrong-way vehicle were injured, two of whom were transported to the hospital by helicopter. The third was fatally injured and died at the scene of the accident. All three victims in the other vehicle were also injured and taken to various hospitals for treatment. The woman who swerved out of her line and struck the other car was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

It does not matter if a person always wears his or her seat belt, follows the speed limit and keeps an eye on the road -- it is impossible to avoid negligent or reckless drivers on Connecticut roads, and the consequences of a  serious crash can be severe. This is why a personal injury lawsuit can be so helpful after a motor vehicle accident. A victim who needs help addressing his or her injuries, medical bills and lost wages can choose to pursue one of these claims.
