Motorist Found Unresponsive
First responders found the woman unresponsive, so life-saving efforts commenced. Emergency personnel transported the victim to Waterbury Hospital where she was pronounced dead. The dump truck driver was not injured.

Although every truck accident is unique, trucking companies may incur liability if a truck driver or the company is found negligent. When it is reasonable to assert negligent conduct, a victim or survivors may seek compensation for certain medical expenses, pain-and-suffering and lost wages.
