Plainville police attempting to find cause of deadly car crash

On Behalf of | Mar 18, 2015 | Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents, Firm News

The accident reconstruction team in Plainville, Connecticut, is seeking information from anyone who might have seen the fatal head-on car accident that happened on New Britain Avenue. The accident left one woman dead and injured two others.

West of the New Britain and Plainville town line, the Plainville police reported that the Mazda sedan driven by a 30-year-old woman crashed into a Nissan SUV traveling in the opposite direction. Rescue workers from the fire department worked to extract the 30-year-old woman from the wreck. She was rushed to Hartford Hospital, but her life could not be saved.

The 25-year-old woman driving the Nissan and her 26-year-old male passenger were also injured, but their conditions were not life threatening, authorities said. The cause of the accident has yet to be determined.

Car accidents with deaths and injuries are sometimes found to result from negligent drivers. Speeding, distracted driving caused by texting or intoxication are all possible types of unsafe or negligent driver behaviors. A person who was killed in a car accident might leave his or her family with high expenses for funeral services. Lost income is another common challenge. If an accident investigation attributes the crash to someone’s negligence, then a survivor might be able to recover damages. A talk with an attorney could inform the survivor about his or her rights to compensation for lost income and the grief from the sudden loss of companionship. An attorney might be able to prepare a wrongful death lawsuit if the evidence supports it.
