Man charged with DUI after crash through Hillside yard
Brian J. Kristy, 24, of Hoydens Lane, turned himself in at police headquarters last week on a warrant for driving under the influence.
The arrest stems from a Sept. 21 accident that happened just before 2 a.m. on Hillside Road, police said. Kristy failed to negotiate a curve in the road and drove through a Hillside Road yard, striking a mailbox and two trees, according to the report. His truck then crossed Governors Lane, went through the center island before crossing Governors Lane again and rolling back onto Hillside before stopping on the shoulder of the road.
Officers arriving on scene found a large amount of debris, including vehicle parts, strewn across the road. Kristy told police he swerved to avoid hitting a deer. He was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport following the accident.
Kristy was released after his Nov. 14 arrest on a promise to appear Dec. 3 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
