Hamden – Officer Injured In Crash
A local officer was injured in a vehicle crash in Hamden late Tuesday evening.
A Hamden Police officer was traveling on Benham Street, trying to locate a suspect involved in another incident on Mix Avenue, when the officer was struck by another vehicle driven by Michael Uihlein. The identity of the police officer remains undisclosed — he/she was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment of multiple injuries. A subsequent investigation revealed that Uihlein was under the influence when the collision occurred. He was immediately apprehended and is now facing charges of improper passing and driving under the influence. He is scheduled to appear in court on December 27.
Whatever the circumstance, driving under the influence is a serious offense and suspects are immediately apprehended to stop them from possibly hurting other people. Motorists or pedestrians who are injured due to the actions of these negligent individuals are advised to consult legal experts because they have to be informed of their options.
