Hamden – Motorist Charged In Fatal Incident
A senior driver was charged in connection with a May incident in Hamden that killed another senior.
On May 26, 74-year-old Robert Sheard of Hamden was on his mobility scooter and attempting to cross Dixwell Avenue right in front of the Miller Memorial Library when he was struck by a car, throwing him off the scooter. The striking car was traveling west and driven by 69-year-old Rosemary Kaliscak of Middletown. Sheard was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he eventually died due to his injuries. Kaliscak was charged yesterday with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle and is scheduled to appear in court on November 26.
