New London – Driver Charged For Intentionally Hitting Car

Yesterday, New London police have formally charged a man for intentionally crashing his car into his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle.

On the evening of April 28, 38-year-old Juan B. Martinez of 93 State Pier Road, intentionally crashed his Nissan Altima into a Kia Sportage driven by his ex-girlfriend on Crystal Avenue. He was reportedly following the victim’s vehicle for some time before the incident occurred. When authorities arrived at the scene, they checked both vehicles, approximately 150 yards apart and saw Martinez trying to leave the area. On the other hand, the ex-girlfriend who was not named by officials, and her male companion sustained minor injuries but both declined treatment. Authorities charged Martinez with first-degree reckless endangerment, reckless driving, evading responsibility and criminal attempt to commit second-degree assault. He is currently free on a $50,000 bond and is due to appear in a New London Superior Court on the 26th of June.
