This accident happened July 29, last Friday, and made national news. It took an unusually long time to identify the driver whose dumptruck slammed into the intersection full of commuters.

The "also known as" is troublesome.

Any evidence that "Abdul" a/k/a "Terrence" decided to go jihad with his truck? After the D.C. snipers, I get suspicious about muslims.

Abdul Raheem Naafi

One Mohammed Atta "lost control" of a vehicle not long ago, too.

No news here. Most every Tri-axle on CT roads is overloaded by a minimum of 15 tons......

Everyone in the state knows about it but refuses to do anything about it.

Television and newspaper reports identified a third person who died, 42-year-old Paul "Chip" Stotler, of New Hartford, a father of five daughters.

My husband and I were very saddened to learn of Chip's death. We didn't know him well, but his wife is an acquaintance of ours. Tragically, he leaves her behind and five beautiful little girls, along with many family members and friends.

Also, I'm fairly certain that another victim of this horrific accident was a former co-worker of mine from years ago. He has multiple injuries, but is expected to recover fully, from what I understand.

Please pray for all involved in this accident...

Thank you LurkedLongEnough for starting this thread.

Police: Truck Driver In Fatal Avon Wreck Had Criminal Past

Police believe the driver of the dump truck that caused a fiery chain-reaction crash in Avon had his license suspended for several months last year and had numerous brushes with the law.

Authorities on Tuesday tentatively identified Abdulraheem Naafi, 41, as one of four people who died in the accident.

Naafi also went by the name Terrance R. Stokes and his most recent address appears to be a homeless shelter in Stamford, police said...

The identification is pending verification by the chief medical examiner's office, said Avon police Capt. Mark Rinaldo. Police were still trying to contact Naafi's family on Tuesday.

At the time of the crash, Naafi was facing charges of drug possession, third-degree criminal trespassing and interfering/resisting arrest, according to state police records... Read entire article here

Is anyone annoyed by the restrictive left-turn signals that are infesting more and more of the intersections in state of CT?

It is my belief that more people died and were involved in this accident BECAUSE they were forced to wait for almost two minutes at both left-turn lanes in the Route 44 lanes. The rest of the 44 traffic had green lights but the left-turn lanes can move with the normal flow even if traffic is clear for them. If these lanes were allowed to flow unrestricted by the new traffic signals there might not have been a story to report at all.

What is the feeling of Nutmeg's on this infringement on our freedom to travel the state highways?

Please contact me if there is interest in organizing to do something about this. mailto:dombrowski@cox.net
