A Good Samaritan, 62-year-old Andy Azib, came across an accident that occurred on I 84 in Southington on the evening of Tuesday, July 6, 2021. He got out of his vehicle to assist one of the motorists when he was struck by a car and later died. The accident occurred at approximately 6:30 PM
just west of exit 28 heading eastbound on I 84.
The Connecticut state police indicated that Mr. Azib, who resides in the Oakville section of Watertown, was on the left side of I 84, on the traveled portion of the highway when he was attempting to come to the aid of an order motorist who was involved in a prior accident. He was struck by a 27-year-old Waterbury man driving a 2015 Nissan Altima.
Mr. Azib was transported to a Waterbury Hospital where he was unfortunately pronounced dead. The Nissan was towed from the accident scene with what has been described as disabling damage according to the Connecticut State Police.
