Students from Canton High School mourned the loss of a teacher on May 9, 2011 after finding out she was killed in a fatal car crash over the weekend. Jaclyn King, 26, has been a teacher at Canton High School for only two years, but according to the students, she left a huge footprint.

“She was such an enthusiastic, passionate educator, always engaging students. She had such a tremendous effect on all of our ninth- through 12th-graders at the high school. It’ a real loss for our school community,” said Kevin Case, the district superintendent.

King died in a car accident on Route 9 in Middletown near exit 12. According to reports, King’s car crashed into a light pole and flipped over after driving into the shoulder. King was reportedly driving home from her family’s house in Waterford after celebrating Mother’s Day at the time of the accident.

King taught 9th and 11th grade English and had her certification in social studies. She also taught at Canton Academy.
Car accidents are serious and can take a persona’ life in an instance. If your loved one is killed in a Connecticut car crash, you should consider speaking with attorney about your right to seek compensation via a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wrongful death lawsuits help surviving family members of the deceased seek and recover financial compensation when their loved ones are killed because of another’s negligence or reckless behavior.
