Bristol – Hit-And-Run Suspect Apprehended
A man was arrested following a hit-and-run incident in Bristol last Saturday.
22-year-old Clayton Nogiec is currently facing several charges in connection to a pedestrian accident. At approximately 5:45 p.m., Nogiec was driving his 2019 Nissan Rogue south on Jerome Avenue when he hit a pedestrian walking his dog near Swanson Drive. Instead of stopping, Nogiec fled the scene. He was eventually apprehended after a witnessed reported his damaged vehicle to authorities. The pedestrian was quickly transported to the hospital for treatment, while his dog was sent to a veterinarian for evaluation. Authorities have yet to identify the victim pending an investigation. They are asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
According to police records, the suspect in this case has a history of reckless/negligent behavior, and this will only strengthen cases filed against him. It’s also important to note that the victim in this incident might have options available to him once he consults a legal expert who will study his case.
