Sandy Hook – Interstate Hit-And-Run Incident
A motorist fled the scene of a highway crash in Sandy Hook Monday evening.
37-year-old William Wilchfort of Brookfield was driving a 2018 Subaru Legacy west on I-84 when another vehicle crashed into him. This forced his vehicle to swerve and hit a guard rail near Exit 10. The driver of the striking vehicle fled the area and remains unidentified. The extent of damage and injuries sustained by Wilchfort and his Subaru has yet to be disclosed, but multiple fire and EMS teams were dispatched on-site. Authorities are currently investigating the crash and following leads that could help them locate and identify the suspect. Anyone with potentially useful info is encouraged to contact State Police as soon as possible.
What could have been just an unintended highway incident has turned into an investigation of possible reckless or negligent behavior. Instances of hit-and-run will only make things worse for offenders, and it’s only fair that these culprits are apprehended and stopped from causing further harm. These things said, injuries caused by negligence can be grounds for filing damage claims if deemed appropriate by legal experts.
