Manchester – Motorist Charged In Pedestrian Crash
A driver is facing charges in connection with a recent Manchester crash that killed a pedestrian.
51-year-old Donald Murak has just been charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle after authorities concluded their investigation into a July 4 incident on Broad Street. 92-year-old Ananias Cabonita was walking in front of Waddell School when he was struck by a vehicle driven by Murak. Cabonita sustained critical injuries in the crash and was transported to Hartford Hospital where he died on July 10. According to investigators, the weather that day was clear and with good visibility, factors that contradicted Murak’s claim that he didn’t notice the victim crossing the roadway. Murak is scheduled to appear in court on November 11.
Authorities investigating pedestrian incidents have to study all factors thoroughly to determine if reckless behavior or negligence may have been involved. Suffice it to say, the primary goal would always be to take culprits off the road and bring them to justice. Victims of these unfortunate events (or their families) would also have legal options at their disposal. Legal experts can study their cases and determine if filing for damages can be an appropriate course of action.
