Recently, a 41 year old Massachusetts woman who was driving in heavy traffic on Interstate 84 in Middlebury, Connecticut, was struck from behind by another Massachusetts resident, who was behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer. Apparently, the force of the collision caused a chainlike effect and the deceased woman's car struck the one in front of her, which struck the next one and so on. Five vehicles were involved in this tragic car accident. There were eight other people that were injured as a result of the accident, one with serious injuries.
A Wellesley emergency room doctor was recently involved in a car crash that left a 78-year-old with numerous injuries. According to reports, the doctor appears to have been under the influence of prescription drugs, which were found in her possession at the time of the accident. The doctor who won a prestigious "doctor of the year" award in 2009 has now been charged with DUI.
