There are lots of different ways that a car accident can happen, from side-swipes to T-bone crashes to head-on collisions. But, when a Connecticut resident is driving the wrong way on the road and causes a car accident, the consequences can be deadly.

That is exactly what appears to have happened in a recent accident. Reports indicate that on August 20, a 56-year-old woman drove her Kia Sorento the wrong way on Hutchinson River Parkway at approximately 4:30 a.m. In doing so, she collided with a Land Rover and a Mercedes. The 56-year-old driver of the Kia died in the crash. Her passenger, a 45-year-old woman, suffered critical injuries.

The driver of the Land Rover, a 29-year-old woman, also suffered serious injuries in the collision. The reports indicate that the driver of the Mercedes was not injured. Although law enforcement officials were working diligently in the aftermath of this collision to determine the cause, there were no immediate indications as to why the 56-year-old driver of the Kia was driving the wrong way on the roadway. Toxicology results are pending.

Serious collisions like this are all too common on the roadways of Connecticut. When a serious car accident leaves innocent victims injured due to the negligent actions of another party, the victims may be able to pursue financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. Doing so could allow the victims to cover the immense costs of medical care and ongoing treatment that are likely necessary in the aftermath of a serious car accident.
