Serious crash leaves at least 1 badly injured in Connecticut

When a person gets behind the wheel while intoxicated, he or she puts the lives of others at risk. Unfortunately, some people believe that it's perfectly acceptable to do so, even though there is plenty of evidence to the contrary.

For example, take this incident that nearly cost at least one person her life. A five-car crash caused by an intoxicated driver seriously injured at least one person, according to a June 19 report. The accident, which was allegedly caused by a 44-year-old man, happened when he was driving dangerously near East Main Street and Quintard Terrance. The driver was with one passenger, 40, at the time.

When police found the men, the 44-year-old man failed the field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over three times the legal limit. As a result of his alleged dangerous driving, four other vehicles had been involved in a crash with him.

One woman, a 53-year-old, suffered a fractured spine and multiple other injuries. At least one other person was taken to the hospital and treated for his or her injuries. The crash also resulted in East Main Street being shut down for several hours during an investigation.

Crashes like this one are completely preventable. The drivers who cause them are reckless and need to be held accountable for their actions. If you are hit by a dangerous or drunk driver, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries and financial losses. Your attorney can help you make sure you get a fair settlement if one is offered to you or support you while you take a case to court.
