Derby – Arrest Warrant In Fatal Pedestrian Incident
Last Monday, an arrest warrant was issued against a motorist suspected of killing a pedestrian in Derby.
On August 12, 2019, 85-year-old Angelina Borrelli was attempting to cross 9th Street when she was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by 26-year-old Eric Miller of Derby. Borrelli was immediately hospitalized following the crash but later died due to the severity of her injuries. Miller stopped at the scene and cooperated with authorities. He asserted that his view was impaired due to glare from the sun that morning. Investigators were able to confirm that claim. Authorities have since filed multiple charges against Miller. He is scheduled to appear in court on February 13.
Pedestrian incidents can happen under various circumstances and don’t necessarily involve ill-intent or reckless behavior. That said, responsible parties have to be brought to justice so that victims or their families can find closure. In specific scenarios, there might also be other legal avenues that aggrieved parties may explore and pursue with the help of expert counsel.
