It isn’t uncommon to see reports about a law enforcement car chase on the evening news. But, it isn’t every day that such a car chase has deadly results. That was the case in a recent incident that many of our readers in Bridgeport may have already seen reports about.

According to the reports, on August 10 at about 1 p.m., law enforcement officers attempted to stop a vehicle due to the fact that the vehicle did not have a license plate. The suspect stopped his vehicle on Interstate 95, but then fled in the vehicle. In the ensuing car chase, the suspect’s car crashed into a Toyota being driven by a woman. After the collision with the Toyota, the suspect continued to drive and struck two pedestrians. He then fled the scene on foot and was later apprehended, and that was when law enforcement officers located several different types of narcotics on the suspect.

The female driver of the Toyota died of her injuries. The two pedestrians were injured, but their injuries were described as non-life-threatening.

If you or a family member are injured by a negligent driver in a car accident, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the person responsible. In a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages, among other damages. If you would like information about whether or not you should file suit against the negligent party, it may be helpful to contact an attorney.
