Logistics can be a challenge at the scenes of car accidents

Nearly every driver in Connecticut has been rerouted or forced to sit in traffic due to a car accident involving other vehicles. It can be frustrating for motorists who have to either find an alternative route or sit for an extended period of time until emergency personnel clear the scene. As inconvenient as the scenes of car accidents can be for waiting motorists, they can be a logistical nightmare for emergency personnel attempting to either get to the scene or rush victims to the hospital.

At a recent accident that occurred at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon, LifeStar was forced to land in a field at the scene, which was on Route 63. Traffic was rerouted for a minimum of two hours while troopers with the Connecticut State Police investigated and cleared the accident. Troopers' preliminary findings reveal that two vehicles were involved in the crash.

A southbound vehicle driven by a 49-year-old man veered into the oncoming lane of travel directly into the path of a northbound vehicle driven by a 55-year-old woman. She was unable to avoid the resulting head-on collision. Both drivers suffered serious injuries, which why the helicopters were called to the scene. Before they could be transported however, the victims both had to be freed from the wreckage.

Depending on the severity of her injuries, the northbound driver could face significant recovery time. During that time, she will more than likely incur a significant financial burden due to lost income, medical expenses and other damages normally incurred due to head-on car accidents. She retains the right to file a personal injury claim against the other driver. Successfully establishing negligence to a Connecticut court could result in a monetary judgment for damages incurred.
