House and 2 parked vehicles damaged in Connecticut crash

| Oct 17, 2018 | Car Accidents, Firm News |

When people think of car accidents, they usually think of vehicles crashing into one another. However, vehicle crashes involving parked cars or even buildings are more common than most people realize; according to the Storefront Safety Council, vehicles in the United States collide with buildings up to 60 times per day in the United States, and a recent crash in Middlefield, Connecticut involved two parked vehicles and an unoccupied house.

The vehicle was traveling southbound at the time of the crash, according to firefighters summoned to the scene of the accident. It hit the house and the two parked vehicles after leaving the roadway on the right side. The crash caused heavy damage to the two parked vehicles, as well as a trailer attached to one of them. The damage to the two parked vehicles caused a spillage of large amounts of fluids such as gasoline, and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection responded to evaluate the area and clean up the fluids. The unoccupied house sustained only minor damage from the accident. 

Authorities continue to investigate the accident. Due to a refusal of medical attention at the scene, the current condition of the driver is unknown. The unidentified driver was the only occupant of the vehicle at the time of the crash. 

A car crash can cause extensive damage to both people and property. Owners of buildings or other property damaged in a car crash may find it helpful to consult a lawyer to inquire about liability claims.
