Farmington – Injuries In Hit-And-Run Incident
Two bike riders were injured by a hit-and-run driver in Farmington last Saturday.
At around 4:15 p.m., authorities received reports of an accident on Fienemann Road and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the area. 61-year-old Cheryl Noad was driving north when her vehicle suddenly veered left, hitting two boys (12 and 13 years old) riding their bicycles in the area. Instead of stopping, Noad fled the area. Responders found the two riders injured and immediately transported them to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for treatment of various injuries, including a leg fracture. A short time later, officials received a call from a concerned motorist reporting a damaged vehicle traveling on I-84. Noad was eventually apprehended and given a field sobriety test which she failed. She was taken into custody and is now facing charges of DUI and reckless driving, among other violations. She is currently free on bond and waiting for her court hearing.
Instances of hit-and-run would, in practically all cases, only aggravate cases against suspects already accused of other road violations. Motorists involved in similar situations should be aware of their rights and options, particularly in cases where negligence has been established. Legal experts can help aggrieved parties pursue these avenues so that they can find closure as quickly as possible.
