92-year-old man dies after crash

Car accidents can occur in a fraction of a second, sometimes as a result of a distracted or reckless driver. A normal trip to the store can turn into a nightmare when an accident occurs and the parties involved are injured or killed. Connecticut residents rarely anticipate getting involved in deadly accidents while exiting their own driveways, however, but that's what police say happened recently.

Our Hartford readers may be interested to learn that a 92-year-old man died from injuries sustained in a car accident that occurred as he was pulling out of his driveway. That's when police say that his Honda collided with another car.

The accident occurred in Shelton, Connecticut. According to police, the man had to be extricated from his vehicle by emergency responders after the door was damaged during the crash. According to police, it was not apparent that the elderly man was injured because he was talking to emergency responders. He only was taken to the hospital because he said he was experiencing chest pain. Police say that the man later died at the hospital. The other driver reported having minor injuries.

Although this particular incident is still under investigation, all parties involved in a collision have legal rights and need to be aware of their options in the aftermath of an accident, including the man's family. If it's proven that the elderly man was negligent, the driver of the other car may have grounds for a lawsuit.
