1 of many car accidents on I-95 resulted in serious injuries

There are days when a certain stretch of highway sees numerous crashes. This was the case on a recent Saturday on Interstate 95. One of those car accidents resulted in the serious injury of two people.

According to the preliminary reports filed by the Connecticut State Police, a Jeep was stopped in the center median of Interstate 95 in the northbound lanes near exit 52. The driver had exited the vehicle in order to fix the problem. At around 3:30 p.m., another vehicle was heading toward the disabled Jeep at a high rate of speed in the center median for an as yet unreported reason. It then slammed into the back of the stopped vehicle.

The impact caused the 38-year-old driver of the Jeep to be thrown over the concrete barrier onto the northbound side of the highway. His 48-year-old passenger was fortunate enough to escape with only minor injuries for which she was treated at a hospital in the area. The driver of the speeding vehicle, a 41-year-old man, suffered what were described as serious injuries for which he was also transported to the hospital. Meanwhile, troopers with the Connecticut State Police continue to investigate the crash.

While officials determine what, if any, criminal charges to file against the other driver, the Jeep driver retains the right to file a personal injury claim against him. Should the evidence establish that negligence led to the victim's injuries, the court might consider awarding him damages. Any restitution the victim receives could help defray the financial losses often incurred in car accidents such as medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
