Bristol – DUI Case Update

A motorist suspected of DUI appeared in court yesterday.

On August 24, 23-year-old Clayton Nogiec of Delmar Drive was driving his 2019 Nissan Rogue on Jerome Avenue when he struck a senior pedestrian near Swanson Drive. Nogiec fled the area immediately following the incident and was later apprehended after witnesses sent reports regarding his damaged vehicle. According to officials, Nogiec was under the influence when the crash occurred and had a history of similar behavior prior to this event. He was eventually charged with DUI and second-degree assault with a motor vehicle, among other charges, and appeared in court yesterday to enter his plea. His next court date is scheduled for November 27.

Stratford – Pedestrian Injured In Accident

A pedestrian was struck by a car in Stratford last Saturday afternoon.

Authorities received reports of the accident at around 2:00 p.m. Emergency responders were dispatched to Barnum Avenue Cutoff, just in front of the Burlington Coat Factory, and discovered a pedestrian who sustained a leg injury after getting hit by a passing car. No word yet on whether or not the offending vehicle fled the area. EMS teams were immediately requested on-site and have since tended to the injured person. The case is currently under investigation. Officials will release more info when appropriate.

Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident and whether or not this is a hit-and-run case. This is worth highlighting because fleeing from accident sites will only exacerbate cases against suspects. That said, it pays to be aware of our rights as pedestrians if ever we are involved in similar situations. With the help of expert counsel, instances of negligent behavior may allow victims to pursue legal cases against suspects.

This may involve seeking damages as a way of coping and eventually finding closure.

Putnam – Pedestrian Injured In Crash

A runner was seriously hurt after she was hit by a vehicle in Putnam yesterday morning.

At around 9:50 a.m., local authorities received reports of an incident on Woodstock Avenue and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the area.

Officials have yet to identify the cause of the incident and are asking anyone who may have witnessed it to contact them as soon as possible.

While pedestrians are usually at the losing end of incidents between them and vehicles, assumptions should not be made with regard to liability until authorities have identified the causes of these encounters. Suffice it to say, people injured in these situations may have options at their disposal to be determined by legal experts who can help them make informed choices.
