Crash at notorious bend kills Oxford
By: Anne M. Amato
"OXFORD — A 35-year-old Peach Farm Road resident
was killed Monday morning when his motorcycle
struck a car on a notorious stretch of Route 188
known as Schreiber's bend, the site of dozens of
accidents in recent years.
James V. Mauri was driving south around 9:06
a.m. when he lost control of his Harley-Davidson
Sportster and collided with a 1992 Mazda driven
by Augustino Fillippone, 55, of South Cliff
Street in Ansonia. Fillippone was heading north,
according to State Trooper John Butkevicius, of
Troop A in Southbury, who is investigating the
Mauri, who was thrown from his motorcycle, was
taken by Oxford Ambulance Association to Griffin
Hospital in Derby, where he was pronounced
"He was in cardiac arrest when we arrived at the
scene," said Jerry Schwab, executive director of
An autopsy is planned today at the Office of the
Chief Medical Examiner in Farmington.
"It doesn't appear he was wearing his helmet,"
Butkevicius said of Mauri.
He said Fillippone refused medical attention.
The accident occurred on a severe curve on Route
188. It's called Schreiber's bend because it
runs along Paul Schreiber's Quaker Farms Road
"I was at the farm this morning and saw the
emergency vehicles fly by," said Schreiber, a
former first selectman. "When I heard them stop
a short distance away, I knew it was probably at
the same spot."
