how ANYONE could be going close to 100 mph on park street in hartford. ESPECIALLY at 6:30 pm. that street is one of the MOST heavily congested streets i have ever been on (city streets that is, not highways). even at 1 or 2 am the street is jumping. cars AND pedestrians. it's beyond belief more people weren't hurt or killed. my heart goes out to the family and friends of the man who was killed (murdered in my eyes). of course the person who was speeding and caused the death WALKED AWAY (from the accident. he was caught thank the goddess)
Driver Arrested After Fatal, High-Speed Crash In Hartford
The Hartford Courant
HARTFORD - A horrific crash caused by a speeding driver left one man dead and another under arrest tonight.
The crash happened in the Parkville section of the city at about 6:20 p.m., police Sgt. Martin Miller said. The driver of a white Cadillac sped west on Park Street, possibly as fast as 100 mph, and slammed into a tan Toyota Corolla that was making a left turn onto Bartholomew Avenue, MIller said.
The Cadillac hit the Toyota broadside and pushed it about 100 feet, under the railroad bridge to Orange Street. The driver of the Cadillac then crawled out of his overturned car and ran down Orange Street to Capitol Avenue, where he broke into an apartment, a witness told police.
The driver, who Miller said is in his 20s, was charged with burglary. He is under police guard at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Miller said. More charges are expected.......
