No matter the location, time of the day, or number of vehicles on the road, an accident can happen at any time. Sometimes, only one car is involved in an accident. In other cases, there are multiple vehicles damaged which can lead to injuries to the drivers and passengers.
Many of our Maryland readers make their way up the east coast from time to time, so this story out of Connecticut may be of interest.
Bristol police are looking for cooperation from anybody who witnessed a two car accident that took place at approximately 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013.
According to police, a vehicle driven by a 22-year-old man was traveling east on Farmington Avenue when he attempted to make a left turn. At that time, his car collided with a Cadillac driven by a 75-year-old man. As a result, the driver of the Cadillac suffered a leg injury. Along with this, his 78-year old passenger suffered chest and head injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Along with this, a 22-year-old passenger in the other vehicle suffered a head injury and was also taken to a hospital.
The 22-year-old driver was charged by police with driving without a license, making a restricted turn, and drunk driving. With these charges in place, it appears that this man is the one who is to blame for the accident.
These types of car accidents can be extremely dangerous. Anybody who is injured due to the negligence of another driver may want to consider enlisting the guidance of a personal injury attorney.
