Driving a car or other vehicle is inherently dangerous, especially on Connecticut’s congested roads and highways. Crashes can be devastating to drivers, passengers and even bystanders. Certain types of crashes tend to do more harm than others, and some are particularly prone to fatalities.
From January 1, 2018 through July 31, 2021 — a period of just over three-and-a-half years — there were 942 traffic fatalities in our state, according to the University of Connecticut’s Crash Data Repository. Any type of motor vehicle accident can be deadly depending on speed, weather and other conditions. However, the Repository’s compiled data show these five types of crashes to be the deadliest:
About one-fifth of the 942 fatalities occurred on the major arteries that crisscross our state, including I-95 (with 56 deaths), I-91 (with 34) and I-84 (with 32).
However, the far greater proportion of vehicular deaths occurred on local streets and roads, which underscores the reality that serious traffic accidents can happen anywhere. If you lost a loved one in a car crash, an experienced attorney can sort through the evidence and explain your legal options. They may include a wrongful death lawsuit if the accident was caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of another driver or someone else involved.
