Southbury – DUI Crash Update
Authorities just released an update regarding a DUI incident in Southbury that injured two people.
On September 25, 2019, 52-year-old Lisa Conroy and Madison, her 19-year-old daughter, were at the intersection of Airport and Strongtown Roads when their car was struck by another vehicle driven by 37-year-old state trooper John McDonald. Both Lisa and Madison sustained serious injuries in the collision. The subsequent investigation revealed that McDonald was under the influence at the time of the crash.
