Teen driver hits and runs
A 17-year-old driver was charged with evading a motor vehicle accident after rear-ending a stopped car and running from the scene on June 25 at 5 p.m.
The driver of the stopped car, a 2005 Lexus 470, was waiting for a red light to change at the intersection of Danbury Road and the driveway of 404 Danbury Road when the teen, who was driving a 2005 Dodge Neon, hit it from behind at an excessive speed.
The teen then backed up and drove away, though not before the driver of the Lexus was able to get her plate number.
The driver called police, who made contact with the teen over the phone.
She came to the Wilton Police Department and was issued a misdemeanor summons for evading a motor vehicle accident, traveling unreasonably fast, and operating a motor vehicle without a license.
Her court date is July 6.
