Bridgeport – Plea Entered In DUI Case
A motorist charged with killing another motorist in Bridgeport just entered his plea yesterday.
Back on New Year’s Day, 50-year-old Keith Commerford was driving under the influence when he hit the vehicle of well-known Bridgeport lawyer Peter Tsimbidaros. Commerford survived the crash relatively unscathed, while Tsimbidaros sustained critical injuries and died at the hospital the following day. After a thorough investigation, multiple charges were filed against Commerford. He entered a not guilty plea in court yesterday and asked for a jury trial. His next court date is on March 2.
Despite the various circumstances typically involved in court cases, the fact remains that the suspect/culprit was taken off the road and stopped from hurting other people. It’s important to identify if DUI, reckless behavior, or negligence are involved in any incident as the discovery of these factors may allow victims or their families to pursue various legal options that can help them find closure.
