Man dies in Connecticut crash

A 31-year-old Connecticut man was killed in an accident on June 18 after his 1999 Honda Civic was hit by a 2006 Chrysler 300c around 5 a.m. His car was sheared in half in the crash. The 62-year-old driver of the other vehicle continued up the street where his car hit a utility pole and rolled over. According to reports, debris spread as far as 600 feet. The accident occurred in Bridgeport.

Bystanders pulled the surviving driver from his car, and he was taken to the hospital in critical condition. According to investigators, excessive speed was one reason for the crash, but they did not yet know how fast the drivers were going.

Reconstructing the accident scene was a complex task that involved bringing in investigators from the Trumbull and Monroe police accident reconstruction teams. A portion of the street did not reopen until after 6 p.m.

The surviving family members of a person who is killed in a car crash often face severe financial consequences that must be dealt with in addition to their grief over the sudden loss of a loved one. In many cases, the victim was the family breadwinner whose contributions to household expenses must now be somehow replaced. The costs of a funeral and interment must be met as well. When the accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, an attorney for the family might suggest that the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault motorist might be an advisable way of seeking compensation for those and other losses.
