Hamden – Damages Filed In Pedestrian Incident

A damage claim has just been filed by the husband of a pedestrian crash victim in Hamden.

Edward Wilczynski from North Haven just filed a case in connection to a July 28, 2018 road incident that killed his wife, 50-year-old Kristin Wilczynski. The accident occurred on Dixwell Avenue, near its intersection with Old Dixwell Avenue. Wilczynski was trying to cross the road when she was hit by a vehicle driven by then 28-year-old Courtney Bothwell, also from North Haven. Wilczynski sustained serious injuries in the crash and was brought to Yale-New Haven hospital by EMS crews, but died soon after. Bothwell was arrested last January and charged with negligent homicide, among other charges. According to police reports, Bothwell claimed she looked away from the road to tend to a puppy that was inside her vehicle when the crash happened. Edward Wilczynski’s recent filing has cited reckless and negligent behavior as factors that initiated the crash. The case is still ongoing.
