Connecticut car accidents: 3 killed, including unborn child

An accident in Connecticut has left a town in mourning. An 85-year-old woman and a pregnant woman were both killed in the tragic incident. An 86-year-old man, who was driving a sedan, apparently attempted to make a turn in front of the pregnant woman's minivan, causing the crash. Not only was the pregnant woman killed, but the man's passenger also did not survive. Car accidents like these can really affect Connecticut communities.

It is unknown why the 86-year-old man turned in front of the pregnant woman's vehicle, but he does appear to be at fault by not checking to make sure the roadway was clear before proceeding. Unfortunately, the two vehicles collided and tragedy struck. Three innocent lives were lost.

The woman in the minivan, who was eight months pregnant at the time, did not survive, nor did the baby she was carrying. Her other children were in the car as well -- ages 4, 6 and 8. The 4- and 6-year-old children were sent to stay with family, while the 8-year-old remains in intensive care at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. The 86-year-old driver is also in the hospital and is said to have required surgery after the crash.

The families of these lost lives are certainly suffering and mourning the loss of their loved ones -- including one they hadn't yet had the chance to meet. With funeral preparations and other unexpected expenses, financial hardships will only add to the grieving process. The family of the deceased mother and her unborn child retain the right to pursue a claim against the driver of the other vehicle, in order to collect financial retribution that could help ease the financial burdens that horrific car accidents can cause.
