Hartford – Guilty Plea In Pedestrian Incident

A motorist just pleaded guilty to charges related to a pedestrian crash in Hartford.

At around 10:45 p.m. on September 3, 2018, 47-year-old Chante Tucker was attempting to cross the intersection of Garden Street and Albany Avenue (Route 44) when a Chevrolet Malibu, driven by 25-year-old Keyvon Cook, hit her. Tucker was thrown about 100 feet from the car and was fatally wounded. She died the following day at the hospital. Instead of stopping, Cook immediately fled the scene. Last Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to charges of making a false statement to police and evading responsibility. His sentencing is scheduled for December 17.

This process can also benefit crash victims or their families in other ways. For example, if investigators discover negligent behavior in specific cases, this might allow aggrieved parties to file for damages as an effective way of finding closure after these traumatic events.
