West Haven – Sentencing In Fatal Crash
A motorist was just sentenced to prison for killing another driver in West Haven.
47-year-old Robert Kryzkij will spend 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter, violating probation and engaging police in pursuit last July. On November 9, 2017, Kryzkij was driving a vehicle that rear-ended a car in Orange. Instead of stopping, Kryzkij fled the scene, prompting officials to pursue the suspect. He eventually made it to Meloy Road in West Haven where he collided head-on with a car driven by then 54-year-old Philip Hunt. Hunt sustained critical injuries and died in the crash. At the time of the incident, Kryzkij was driving under the influence. According to records, Kryzkij has a history of various offenses, including assault and other incidents of DUI.
This case highlights the circumstances that surround most road incidents caused by DUI. It is imperative that these offenders are taken off the road and brought to justice. That said, victims of these events have options at their disposal. Aggrieved parties should be given opportunities to cope and find closure, and in many cases, legal experts can help victims make sense of these options.
