Fatal accident blamed on illegal racing, arrests made

Connecticut residents are likely aware that summer vacation means sharing the roads with a large number of teen drivers. Most parents do their best to prepare young drivers, and drivers' education courses stress the importance of obeying traffic laws and driving in a safe and courteous manner. On some occasions, however, teens choose to disregard the laws and chase an adrenaline rush by racing illegally on the streets. This behavior is a frightening scenario that can lead to a fatal accident. 

Trailer-truck accident claims two lives over weekend

Connecticut drivers are likely aware that as the summer heat increases, so does the amount of traffic on the roads shared by residents and tourists alike. Crowded highway lanes lead to an increased risk of a trailer-truck accident. Even though some motorists are traveling for fun, many truck drivers are making their way across the nation, moving the goods and supplies necessary to keep the country running. 

Small child becomes pedestrian accident victim

Connecticut residents likely consider their state to be a relatively safe place to live and raise a family. While this is generally the case, the state is far from immune from the types of crimes that plague the rest of the nation. While most residents would agree that car accidents involving pedestrians are especially dangerous and frightening, pedestrian accident victims are especially at risk when a driver chooses to flee the scene. 

Motorcycle crash victim loses life.

Connecticut drivers would likely agree that in addition to watching out for pedestrians, animals, bicyclists and other vehicles that often share the roadways, it is important to keep an eye out for motorcycles as well. Many consider motorcycles to be a fun and exciting way to travel, and while that may be true, they can also be quite dangerous. Due to the very nature of riding a motorcycle, the driver is largely unprotected, except for personal safety gear. This means that any motorcycle crash has an increased probability of resulting in serious injury or death.
