Norwalk – Hit-And-Run Suspect Surrenders To Authorities

A hit-and-run suspect surrenders to Norwalk Police last Monday afternoon.

23-year-old Jose Cuahuizo was arrested in connection to a May 5 incident where he hit a pedestrian. The victim was walking near the intersection of North Main and Marshall Streets when he was hit by a car driven by Cuahuizo. Instead of staying, the suspect fled the accident scene. Emergency crews immediately transported the victim to Norwalk Hospital where he eventually recovered. Cuahuizo subsequently called the police to report the incident but only turned himself in last Monday. He is now facing charges of evading responsibility for an accident.

Pedestrian safety is well-protected under state and local laws, so injuries resulting from negligence or reckless behavior/driving can be strong grounds for filing damage/compensation claims. Cases of hit-and-run only aggravate these situations.
