Man killed in interstate accident

It goes without saying that roadways are dangerous place to be, even inside a vehicle. Each year, there are thousands upon thousands of people in injured and killed while riding inside of vehicles on roads and interstates throughout the country. For those who are outside of a vehicle on a road or interstate, tragedy can strike in an instant, even when something occurs that would have otherwise not have been deadly. This heartbreaking reality was illustrated several days ago when a man was killed in relation to a relatively minor car accident in Hartford.

Details remain scarce about the incident, but according to reports, the man was standing outside his car, which was stopped in the left lane of an overpass spanning railroad tracks. While stopped, his car was rear-ended by another driver, causing the man to fall over the side of the safety barrier onto the railroad tracks. He was killed by the fall.

The authorities have not yet released the findings of the accident investigation, so it still unknown what factors contributed to the other driver colliding with the stopped car. Neither the other driver or the man's passenger were injured.

A needless death can happen anywhere, and exiting a vehicle on a roadway or interstate only increases one's chances of serious injury or death. If you have lost someone you love, you deserve to be informed about whether or not the circumstances of the death may necessitate a wrongful death claim. The guidance of an experienced attorney can help you navigate this difficult process and ensure that you are heard fairly, while preserving the memory of the one you have lost.
