Car crash seriously injures 2 young children
NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — Police have arrested a driver who they say swerved into oncoming traffic in Connecticut and hit a vehicle with a woman and her two children inside, seriously injuring the children.
The 32-year-old Colchester man is facing charges of assault, driving under the influence and driving without a license among other offenses.
Police say the crash happened Saturday night in Norwich. The man fled the scene on foot before he was apprehended by Connecticut State Police.
A 3-year-old and a 6-year-old who were inside the other car have been hospitalized with serious injuries. Police did not have an update with their condition as of Sunday morning.
Authorities are now searching for another car believed to have been involved in a road rage confrontation with the man before the crash.
