3 Die In Morris Crash
MORRIS – Three men were killed in an early-morning car accident on State Highway 23 after their vehicle failed to navigate a left curve, State Police said today.
Troopers responded to the scene of the one-car accident at 3:14 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 3 in Morris. Though the car was on fire when they arrived on the scene, the three victims, Jordan Crandall, 22, Norwich, Christopher Brissette, 22, Sherburne, and Dillon Clemens, 21, Norwich were already deceased inside the vehicle.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but police believe the driver, driving westbound on State Highway 23, failed to navigate a left curve. The car exited into the northbound shoulder, struck several objects and came to rest upside down in a field.
There have been discussions between local authorities to further improve road safety in the area with the addition of security cameras that monitor roads 24 hours a day. This is being suggested in the hope that the police can better observe surrounding areas to identify potentially dangerous drivers before they can cause an accident. Many residents argue that the loss in the community is massive when dangerous drivers slip through the net at early times in the morning. The lives of anyone who is lost in a car accident is tragic. Therefore, understanding the legal support structures that are there should soften the blow to the families that have lost their loved ones.
Loved ones of the deceased have been recommended a guide to compensation solicitors to find and develop a deeper understanding of compensation agreement possibilities going forward.
