BRIDGEPORT (AP) — A Maine man has been charged in connection to a Westport highway crash that killed a child last year.
Jesse Zorski, 30, of Freeport, Maine, turned himself in Friday to the Connecticut State Police in Bridgeport on an active arrest warrant.
Zorski was driving a car that rear-ended another vehicle in April 2017, according to police. A 9-year-old boy in the front car suffered a serious head injury and later died.
Zorski is charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle, following too closely, distracted driving and speeding.
He was released after posting a $100,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court in May. An attorney for Zorski was not immediately identified.
