Newtown – DUI Suspect Arrested
A motorist was arrested following a hit-and-run intersection crash in Newtown last week.
The incident occurred at the intersection of South Main Street (Route 25) and Glover Avenue. 41-year-old Ronald Morgan was driving a white BMW that collided with another vehicle at the junction. He reportedly engaged in a verbal argument with the driver of the second vehicle, but fled the area before responders arrived. A police chase ensued before Morgan was apprehended several miles from the crash site and after several attempted stops by enforcers. He was subsequently found to be intoxicated at the time of the incident and is currently facing multiple charges, including DUI and evading responsibility. He is scheduled to appear in court on December 27.
Driving under the influence and hit-and-run are both serious offenses that will only aggravate cases against suspects who have already committed other violations. Suffice it to say, taking these negligent individuals off the road is imperative. Under appropriate circumstances, parties injured by these suspects can also file damage claims with the help of expert legal counsel.
