Bridgeport – Fatal Crash Update
Authorities just released additional info regarding last week’s fatal intersection crash in Bridgeport.
50-year-old Peter Tsimbidaros was killed last week after the vehicle he was driving was struck by another vehicle operated by 50-year-old Keith Commerford. It was subsequently suspected that Commerford was under the influence at the time of the crash and was immediately apprehended. Multiple charges have since been filed against him. According to officials, Commerford was already involved in other hit-and-run incidents in the city even before this recent tragedy. He was reportedly using both cocaine and heroin and, according to authorities, should not have been allowed to operate any vehicle. At his court arraignment yesterday afternoon, a $1 million bond was ordered against Commerford.
