Waterbury – Bus Passenger Killed By A Car
A pedestrian was killed by a passing car in Waterbury last Monday evening.
At around 8:00 p.m., 30-year-old Mariely Cruz of Waterbury just exited a passenger bus and was crossing the street at 345 Stillson Road when she was hit by a 2015 Honda Civic. Instead of stopping, the driver of the vehicle fled the scene. EMS personnel immediately responded to reports of the crash, though Cruz was pronounced dead at the scene. The vehicle was eventually found, and 31-year-old Kristen Mulcahy was arrested in connection to an earlier incident. Authorities are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash that killed Cruz and the prior incident that Mulcahy was involved in. Officials will provide updates when appropriate.
Pedestrian accidents are always investigated for possible negligence or reckless behavior, and that seems to be involved in this case. Establishing accountability is always a primary goal for accident investigators, and this is important if culprits are to be brought to justice. Not only that, it also enables victims or their families to file for damages if circumstances warrant that course of action.
