Police: New Canaan Man, 65, Charged with Evading Responsibility After Leaving Scene of Accident

Police on Thursday morning arrested a 65-year-old New Canaan man by warrant in connection with a motor vehicle collision last week.

On Oct. 13, a complainant told police about a parked car struck by another vehicle on Locust Avenue, officials said.

Witnesses gave the victim the license plate of the vehicle that had struck the car, according to a police report.

Police used the license plate as well as video surveillance to determine that a Shady Knoll Lane man was at fault, the report said.

He turned himself in at 7:30 a.m. on a charge of evading responsibility and additionally was cited for unsafe backing.

Police released the man on $250 bond and scheduled him to appear Oct. 30 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
