Waterbury – Hit-And-Run Suspect Identified
The suspect of a recent pedestrian accident has surrendered herself to authorities in Waterbury yesterday.
26-year-old Dominique Caraway of Naugatuck is currently facing several charges in connection to a recent incident where a 69-year-old pedestrian was killed after being hit by a vehicle. Henry Pearson was crossing the roadway in front of 937 North Main Street when he was struck by a vehicle driven by Caraway. He sustained serious head injuries and died soon after. Caraway initially reported her car as stolen to avoid apprehension but eventually surrendered herself to local police. She has been charged with reckless driving, tampering with evidence, falsely reporting a motor vehicle theft, and evading responsibility for a crash resulting in death.
This case highlights the processes and circumstances surrounding many hit-and-run incidents. It’s important to note that victims of these events (or their families) also have options they can explore, including filing for damages if their legal counsel deems it appropriate.
