Virtually every Connecticut driver is aware that if an auto accident takes place, the proper course of action is to stop and address the matter. In some cases, a simple exchange of insurance information is sufficient. In other instances, rendering emergency first aid is required, as is remaining on the scene until emergency responders and police officers arrive. In a recent hit\-and\-run pedestrian accident, none of those things took place after a driver struck a construction worker.
Few things are more frightening to Connecticut drivers than encountering a wrong-way driver on a dark stretch of road. That was the exact scenario that one driver faced on a recent night close to New Haven. The result was a fatal accident that claimed the lives of both drivers. The story serves as a warning to all drivers of the increased hazards that come with driving in the early morning hours.
