Fatal motorcycle accident shuts down I-691

On Behalf of | Sep 3, 2021 | Motorcycle Accidents |

This blog has spoken about motorcycle accidents in the past, and a key takeaway is always that these accidents often have severe, even deadly, consequences. This is because there is relatively little safety mechanism for motorcyclist outside of their helmet and safety gear. Unfortunately, one local rider has died as a result of a recent crash.

The fatal accident

According to the Connecticut Department of Transportation and the Connecticut State Police, the accident happened last Saturday in Meriden on Interstate 691, near exit 5. The 37-year-old Bristol motorcyclist was pronounced dead after being taken to Waterbury Hospital.

The investigation

Though, even though the CSP Collision Analysis Reconstruction Squad conducted an onsite investigation, no details of the fatal motorcycle accident have been released. All we know is that around 5:40 p.m., emergency services were dispatched and the highway was shut down from exits 4 to 6 for a large chunk of the day. And, CSP are still looking for witnesses and anyone who may have dashboard camera footage of the fatal crash.

Motorcycle accidents, generally

For East Hartford, Connecticut, motorcyclists, this story is, in a word, scary. But, riders should know that there are options, should an accident occur. First, for the rider themselves, they can personally hold the negligent driver that caused the accident responsible through a personal injury lawsuit. This will allow them to recover for all of their damages, including their pain and suffering. Second, even if the motorcyclist passes away because of the accident, their family can still bring a wrongful death lawsuit against that negligent driver. The key takeaway here is that, even if the criminal justice system does not bring justice, the civil justice system is always there.
