On Dec. 5 around 10 a.m., a three-car accident on Route 7 sent the at-fault driver and one of her passengers to Norwalk Hospital. Carol Plofkin, 51, of 53 Bryant Place, Stratford, was driving southbound when a car in front of her slowed down to make a turn onto Kent Road.
Unable to stop in time, Plofkin swerved into the left lane and struck the right side of a car in that lane.
The impact from the collision caused Plofkin’s 2013 Nissan Pathfinder to lunge back into the right lane, striking the rear of the same car she was initially trying to avoid.
Plofkin and one of her passengers were injured and were transported by ambulance to Norwalk Hospital.
Plofkin was issued an infraction for following too closely.
