1 of 2 fatal motorcycle accidents remains under investigation

During the summer months, more Connecticut residents get out of their houses to enjoy the weather. Many of them ride motorcycles, which raises the potential for motorcycle accidents. Sadly, some of the victims of these crashes could suffer severe or deadly injuries that could alter their lives and/or the lives of their families.

Within a five day period, two fatalities occurred in a Connecticut city. Both of the victims were motorcycle riders. The investigation into one of the crashes remains ongoing.

Preliminary reports indicate that at approximately 10:30 a.m. on a recent Saturday morning, a 68-year-old man was riding along Shelton Road in Monroe. At some point on his journey, a truck struck him and his cycle. When emergency responders arrived, the victim was barely alive. He was taken to a hospital in the area where he died.

The section of road where the accident took place was shut down for approximately an hour while officers investigated the scene. The Monroe Serious Crash Investigation Team has taken over the investigation. No information was provided regarding whether any charges are being contemplated against the driver of the truck.

Regardless, the family of the man who was killed may still file a wrongful death claim against the truck driver in a Connecticut civil court. Should the family provide sufficient evidence to the court establishing that the negligence of another led to the death of their loved one, an award of damages could be considered. Any restitution received might help with the financial losses often seen in the aftermath of fatal motorcycle accidents.
