Jewett City – Suspect Arrested For Serious Injuries

A man suspected of assault and larceny was arrested by state police yesterday.

46-year-old Matthew Kelly from Norwich has been charged by authorities with third-degree larceny and first-degree assault stemming from a March 25 incident where he stole a car and ran over its owner. That day, a 67-year-old man parked his Ford Focus at a Country Farms store on Main Street, leaving his car unlocked in the parking area. Kelly entered the car while its owner was inside the store and tried to leave the area. The owner ran outside to apprehend the suspect and was directly hit by Kelly, throwing him off the car and onto the road. Kelly then ran over the victim twice before leaving the scene. The victim sustained serious injuries, including several fractures. According to officials, Kelly has a history of DUI, burglary and larceny cases.

Personal injuries caused by negligence, reckless behavior and DUI can, under appropriate circumstances, entitle aggrieved parties to damages/compensation. It pays to take note of these cases so that we know what we are entitled to if ever we experience similar situations.

Seymour – DUI Causes Several Injuries

Two people were injured by a man driving under the influence in Seymour last Wednesday evening.

Local officials responded to a three-vehicle accident that occurred on Great Hill Road (Route 334) at approximately 8:30 p.m. 36-year-old Deonte Glass of Georgia was driving his Dodge Ram pickup truck north on that route when his vehicle crossed the center line and hit a Ford Mustang on the southbound lane. The truck then continued north and hit another vehicle, a Toyota Prius, also headed south. The driver of the Mustang was not injured. The two occupants of the Prius sustained injuries and were immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. Glass was apprehended by authorities and given a sobriety test, which he failed. He was arrested and is now facing charges of failure to drive right and DUI.
