Trees Along Merritt Parkway Pose A Danger

Trees lining the Merritt Parkway make for a scenic commute but those same trees can make a ride dangerous and even deadly if they fall in the road. State of Connecticut crews have been trimming trees after a tree limb fell on a motorist’s car Sunday night near exit 50. The motorist remains in critical condition. Last June, a New York family crashed into a downed tree in Westport. The accident killed two parents and injured their two children. Governor Jodi Rell has called for crews to take a closer look at condition of trees along the state roadway.  Given the latest incident, it appears that more extensive tree inspections are required to ensure the safety of motorists driving on the Merritt Parkway.

Florida Teenage Driver Killed In BMW M5 High Speed Crash

Less than 12 hours before he died, Joshua Ammirato was posting messages on an Internet message board seeking advice about how to drive his 2008 BMW M5 faster. Ammirato, 18, logged onto Thursday and Friday, asking other M5 drivers how to shift smoother in the 500-horsepower machine.
“The problem is when I’m going pedal to the metal pushing 140 and upshifting, there tends to be thud noise with the gear change,” he wrote in one post. Ammirato and four other young Marion County men were killed at about 3:45 a.m. Saturday, when the BMW M5 he was driving sailed off the end of the Greystone airstrip in Anthony and crashed into a tree. Messages on the board devoted to M5 enthusiasts show Ammirato logged on shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday as “AmericanM5.” Read more about this tragic car accident.
