Connecticut man arrested on multiple charges after hit-and-run

A 25-year-old man from Stamford is facing multiple charges following an alleged hit and run accident that occurred on June 14. The charges against the man include leaving the scene of an accident, second degree assault with a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while under the influence, driving without a license, and following too closely.

According to police, the man was driving westbound on East Main Street around 11 p.m. when he allegedly began striking his 1998 Lincoln Navigator into a 2010 Ford Taurus that was driving directly in front of him. The man's vehicle reportedly struck the other vehicle twice from behind, then pushed the Taurus a third time, sending it across the eastbound lanes and into a pay phone that was located at a nearby McDonald's.

Authorities state that the man then allegedly left the scene of the accident and drove himself to his home on George Street. Witnesses observing the accident were able to get a license plate number, which they provided to police, who later arrested the man at his residence. A 33-year-old Stamford man who was driving the Taurus at the time of the accident was transported to Stamford Hospital, where he was treated for injuries to the chest, shoulders, and neck.

Individuals who have been the victim of a drunk driving accident may be entitled to compensation for their injuries or loss that they sustain due to their accident. They may find it beneficial to learn more about their legal rights by speaking with an experienced Connecticut personal injury attorney.
