Farmington – Hit-And-Run Suspect Arrested

Police just arrested a hit-and-run suspect in Farmington yesterday.

The arrest was made in connection to an accident last Saturday where a vehicle driven by 26-year-old Michael Rios of Hartford hit a motorcyclist, seriously injuring him. Instead of staying at the scene, Rios fled the area. He abandoned his vehicle on the exit 39 off ramp and was apprehended by police soon after. Rios is now facing several charges, including reckless endangerment and evading responsibility.
