Good news has been released in the case of a young Connecticut boy who was injured by a drunk driver in March. According to The Day News, the 6-year-old boy was released from the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center after more than a month of treatment.
The crash occurred on March 9 around 9:00 p.m. when his father’s car was involved in an accident with a drunk driver. Reports say that the man had the boy and his brother buckled in the backseat as the trio headed south on I-395 outside Hartford, Connecticut. Suddenly, a vehicle driven by a 50-year-old alleged drunk driver cut across the lanes of traffic in an effort to make a U-turn, causing the two vehicles to collide.
After the initial impact, the father’s car crossed the center dividing lines of the highway and struck two more vehicles before coming to rest. The boy’s father was declared dead as the victims were rushed to a local hospital for treatment.
The drunk driver responsible for the crash was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs as well as second-degree assault with a motor vehicle. More charges are said to be pending.
The Connecticut Auto Accident Lawyers with Carter Mario Injury Lawyers would like to send their condolences to the boy and his family for the loss of his father, and we hope the boy continues to recover from his injuries.
