Motor vehicle accidents: Connecticut officer under investigation

Most people have made decisions that they regret at some point during their lives. Making a mistake does not mean that a person is bad, but some people end up facing harsher consequences for their decisions than other people do. When mistakes may have involved motor vehicle accidents, these individuals might be criminally charged.

A Connecticut police officer was apparently involved in an accident that left a mother and her daughter injured. On Sept. 25, 2019, the officer apparently drove through a stop sign and then collided head-on with the mother's vehicle. The extent of the mother's and daughter's injuries are not clear, and apparently the officer was also injured.

Police believe that the officer who allegedly caused the wreck may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time. Earlier that day he had attended a retirement party for a fellow member of the police force, which was held at a local brewery. Police are still trying to determine whether he had anything to drink during the event.

The Connecticut officer has not been officially charged with anything, but he is under investigation for both motor vehicle and criminal matters. He is also being investigated in regard to internal affairs. When motor vehicle accidents lead to criminal charges, it is essential that defendants understand their rights and options for defense. This means that a defendant may choose to fight the charges to his or her fullest extent in court, or to negotiate a plea deal in exchange for lesser charges.
