East Hartford – Motorist Charged In Fatal Crash
A motorist involved in a recent crash in East Hartford that killed a motorcyclist was just charged with manslaughter.
According to officials, 54-year-old Alfred Levy and 29-year-old Sean Steven had an argument at an event in East Hartford on August 11. A few minutes past 8:00 p.m., Levy left the venue on his motorcycle. He was reportedly followed by Steven on his SUV. At approximately 8:50 p.m., Steven’s SUV crashed into Levy’s motorcycle at the intersection of Park Avenue and Main Street. Levy sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead. The investigation that followed has pointed to several details that indicate ill-intent on the part of Steven: his argument with Levy at the venue, and the speed his SUV was traveling at when it hit the motorcycle. Steven is now facing charges of reckless endangerment, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, evading responsibility, and first-degree manslaughter. He is scheduled to appear in court on October 24.
