Those who live in the northeast are no strangers to winter storms. Every winter, there seems to be at least one storm so heavy that snow will remain stacked up high long into the spring. These storms bring activity to a halt, and make transportation extremely difficult, not to mention dangerous. Snowy and icy street conditions are responsible for many car and other accidents each year, even though drivers in the northeast know to be especially cautious. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert snow and ice accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
This past winter, a snow storm that hit New England was blamed for car crashes across the region, as well as several deaths. The town of East Bridgeport, located 30 miles south of Boston, reportedly got hit with 19.5 inches of snow. Connecticut and Rhode Island weather stations reported similar numbers, and an especially serious 12 car crash in Connecticut was reported in connection with the stormy conditions.
In fact, authorities have said that this multiple motor vehicle crash was just one of roughly 115 crashes statewide. Along with icy roads, the snowfall made visibility close to zero. In other words, the conditions provided a perfect storm for accidents, and state highway director Tom Tinlin suggested that those in the vicinity stay clear of the roads if at all possible.
