Milford, MA (July 14, 2018) – A woman in Milford celebrating her birthday was killed in a crash on Interstate 95 early Friday morning. 22 year old Stephanie Boaventura was traveling in a 2010 Toyota Corolla when, for an unknown reason, her car left the roadway. After leaving the roadway, she attempted to correct the car’s path back onto the road. In the process, her car veered to the left and struck a guardrail.
Police, along with ambulance units, rushed to the crash scene upon receiving reports of a serious accident with injuries. Boaventura was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead. She had been out with friends celebrating her 22nd birthday and was on her way home when the crash occurred.
Police are looking into the accident at this time. As of Saturday, there is no word on the cause of the collision or what may have caused Boaventura to lose control of her vehicle.
Single Vehicle Injury Attorneys
This single vehicle crash reminds us that such crashes can have deadly consequences. Although we do not typically think of single vehicle crashes as more deadly than other types of crashes, they can be depending on the circumstances, such as the speed of the car and any objects that are struck in the collision.
Single vehicle crashes occur for a variety of reasons, including driver error, but also mechanical malfunction and other external factors such as items in the roadway, defensive maneuvers to avoid other vehicles, or animals, etc. The cause of a single vehicle crash must be closely examined in order to determine responsibility. In many cases, insurance companies are hesitant to allow injury claims in single vehicle cases without clear proof of fault.
