Milford – Hit-And-Run Suspect Apprehended

Milford authorities were led on a high-speed chase before apprehending a suspect last Sunday evening.

The incident occurred on New Haven Avenue a few minutes before 11:00 p.m. West Haven Police contacted Milford officials regarding a driver who left the scene of a crash with minor injuries in West Haven and was headed towards Milford. Officials identified and tried to apprehend the suspect near the New Haven Avenue and Old Gate Lane intersection but the driver kept on moving, behaving erratically throughout the incident. He eventually stopped near the New Haven Avenue and Buckingham Avenue intersection where he was taken into custody. 31-year-old Joseph Skehan currently faces charges of violating his probation, reckless driving, engaging police in a pursuit and interfering with an officer.

Taking note of this and other similar cases can be useful, particularly when studying scenarios that entitle aggrieved parties to file for damages/compensation. Hit-and-run incidents only strengthen cases against suspects who are accountable for accidents that result in injuries.
