Fatal accident in Connecticut involving 4 cars kills woman

Friday December 20, 2013

Auto accidents can be caused by many different situations. Chain reaction accidents resulting from a small initial collision are, unfortunately, quite common. A Monday morning crash in Connecticut initially involved just two cars, but four cars were part of the fatal accident in the end. The death that resulted from this tragic collision is truly upsetting.

A school bus was apparently making its usual rounds in the morning when a Toyota hit a van that had stopped for the bus. This collision did not cause significant damage, and there were no reports of any injuries. Both vehicles moved off the road to examine the damage. While the two parties were doing so, the Toyota was struck by another vehicle.

This driver, who was operating a Honda, stopped and was apparently in the process of exchanging information with the driver of the Toyota. Soon after, a Jeep — the fourth involved car — struck the Toyota. The 31-year-old Honda driver was stuck between the two vehicles. After being rushed to the hospital, the victim passed away from her injuries. Police are still investigating the fatal accident to document exactly what occurred.

Being in an accident is stressful under any circumstances and especially when they are destructive. The victim was involved in three accidents, finally resulting in her death. The family of this Connecticut woman may elect to pursue a wrongful death claim against the Jeep’s driver and any other party whose negligence is deemed to have caused or contributed to the fatal accident. Although a successful litigation cannot bring back the life of their loved one, it may ease the financial burden of funeral costs and related losses from this tragedy.
