Two Car Crashes Lead to Two Deaths

Two car crashes have left a pedestrian and a driver dead.

According to authorities the first incident happened on December 25, Christmas night, at around 8.30 p.m. when 18 year old Robert Weidig Jr. was hit by a car which was going north on Route 68. The car driver, 60 year old Barbara Ross of Cheshire was uninjured but was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and failure to maintain a proper lane.

She was released on $5,000 bail and will appear in New Haven Superior Court on January 14.

The next morning at around 4 a.m. a driver, who has not yet been identified, was killed when he was travelling on the I 84 westbound near the Exit 57 off ramp. It appears the car lost control and crashed into the exit sign, a metal guardrail and finally an electrical box, which then caught fire and set light to the vehicle. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
