Police charged a landscaping truck driver with driving under the influence after a serious crash Friday night on Wahackme Road. 

A passenger in the truck was transported to Norwalk Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after the crash, according to New Canaan Police Lt. Jason Ferraro, the department’s public information officer.

Police, fire and EMTs responded to the scene after a report of the crash came in at about 7:50 p.m.

A preliminary investigation shows that the truck struck a guardrail near the intersection of Dogwood Lane, then struck a utility pole and came to rest in a yard at 242 Wahackme Road, Ferraro told NewCanaanite.com. 

The driver additionally was charged with reckless driving. 

The motorist’s information will be made available upon completion of an incident report, Ferraro said.

NewCanaanite.com will have more information as soon as it becomes viable.

  1. Not suggesting that this is indicative of all other landscapers (being drunk), but there definitely is an unfortunate trend of landscape trucks treating Wahackme, West and Greenley roads as some kind of makeshift autobahn. This accident is horrible, but honestly I’m surprised there aren’t more of them.

  2. It seems that driving during the age of the coronavirus has gotten much worse by a small segment. Speeding, loud vehicles, aggression on both highways and local roads. I know the police have been very busy and I greatly respect the work they are doing now but I think this needs special attention.
