The Connecticut Car Accident Lawyers with Carter Mario Injury Lawyers explain that when a motor vehicle collision occurs, there can be a number of factors that contribute to the crash occurring. One common cause for crashes is a defective highway design and several residents of Branford, Connecticut, say it is to blame for a string of accidents that have recently occurred in the area.
At around 1:20 a.m. this past Sunday morning, along Brushy Plains Road in Overland Court, a 28-year-old woman died when the vehicle she was the passenger in veered off the roadway and struck a tree. An article from NBC-Connecticut explains two women who live near the scene of the crash rushed toward the wreckage and pulled the trapped female passenger to safety. The victim was rushed to a local hospital, but died shortly after arrival.
The two witnesses say this was the fourth serious car accident to occur on their property in the time they have lived in the area. This most recent crash has prompted the pair to approach the Department of Transportation about adding some safety features to the road, which could include lighting, signs, and guardrails. The pair believe the latest fatality could have been prevented if guardrails had been in place.
