Connecticut Man Already Facing Charges For A Fatal Hit And Run Is Charged With DWI

On January 13, 2009, Connecticut police arrested a man for DWI.  The man lost control of his car, went airborne and crashed into a tree.  He fled the scene but was later arrested.  While this single car accident is bad enough, the driver of this car was previously arrested for a hit and run that killed a pedestrian back in April.  It is unclear from the news report whether alcohol played a role in the April fatal crash.
