Stratford – Car Chase Causes Injuries
A car chase in Stratford last Tuesday evening results in several injuries and the arrest of three suspects.
The incident started at around 8:30 p.m. A 2003 Honda Civic with three occupants ran a red light at the intersection of Main Street and Broadbridge Avenue. Police in the area tried to apprehend the suspects but the vehicle didn’t stop, turning onto Stratford Avenue and running another red light in the process. The suspects’ car then turned onto Bruce Avenue where it collided with a vehicle occupied by two police detectives. The Honda Civic kept on running until it pulled over on West Avenue. Police immediately apprehended two of the suspects. The third one was arrested on Victory Street a short time later. The driver, 18-year-old Sherrard Lytrell Colon, was charged with reckless driving, plate misuse, operating an unregistered vehicle, among other offenses. 18-year-old Justin Montgomery and Justin Perez were both charged with interfering with an officer. The two police detectives whose vehicle was hit by the suspects sustained injuries in the incident and were transported to Bridgeport Hospital.
