Some of our readers may have seen the news reports about a head-on collision that occurred recently in nearby Prospect. According to the reports, the collision occurred on September 23 in the afternoon. The Connecticut State Police are reportedly still investigating the car crash.

From the details that were available in the initial reports, it appears that at least one person suffered serious injuries and may not survive. The reports indicate that a 68-year-old woman driving an Acura was heading eastbound and a 48-year-old man driving a pickup truck was headed westbound. Although there were no initial reports as to how the collision occurred, at some point the vehicles collided head-on, resulting in massive damage to both vehicles.

The 68-year-old woman was transported to the hospital with what was initially described as life-threatening injuries. The other driver suffered injuries as well and was also transported to the same hospital, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

In the aftermath of this serious collision, it will be important for law enforcement officials to conduct a thorough investigation to attempt to determine who crossed the centerline and, therefore, might be responsible for causing the accident. Was one of the drivers texting and driving? Did alcohol play a role? Once the cause of the car accident is determined, the driver who was not at fault may have a strong case to bring in a personal injury claim. In doing so, the victim may be able to recover financial compensation to cover the costs of medical bills and other expenses related to the crash.
