With all the joys and wonder that accompany the snow during winter months, there are some downsides as well. For example, while driving during winter, a driver’s visibility can decrease significantly. Vehicles may spin out of control and stopping can take a significantly longer time than when the weather is not a factor. It is every driver’s duty to operate their motor vehicle in a safe and considerate manner. However, even if you do everything properly and take all the proper precautions, you may still wind up in an accident. If you have been in an accident, the experienced snow and ice personal injury attorneys here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates can help guide you through this complicated litigation process.
A crash involving as many as 20 vehicles has closed a section of a Connecticut highway as heavy snow falls in southern New England. The pileup on Interstate 91 in Middletown, Connecticut occurred late one afternoon during the winter and involved at least three tractor-trailers. No serious injuries were reported. Up to 8 inches of snow was expected in parts of Connecticut. Blizzard conditions were reported on Cape Cod and Plymouth County. Officials warned people to stay off the roads as the heavy snow and gusty winds were expected to reduce visibility to near zero.
