Man arrested after fleeing police in Hartford

It's a shock any time a police chase occurs. People know that they shouldn't flee, yet they do anyway. This puts them and others at risk of being in a crash.

The man in this case has been a danger to himself and others more than once, according to the police. A man in Hartford has been arrested following a police chase. According to the April 28 report, the man had stolen a pickup truck and became involved in a police chase when they approached his stopped vehicle after a person reported that someone could be in medical distress inside the vehicle. When he awoke with officers speaking to him, he began to drive away, hitting a nearby firetruck.

He continued on and hit a pole before striking an unoccupied home. He was taken into custody, where officers discovered that he was a man with a warrant out for his arrest. He was wanted for a connection with a shooting incident in April and deadly crash in February. In the most recent encounter, the man had a loaded gun and stolen vehicle.

He has been charged with an attempt to commit first-degree assault, firearm-related charges and others for the April incident. For the crash in February, he faces manslaughter charges.

It's not clear what will happen next in this case, but if you've been hit by someone who has violated the law and caused a crash, it's important to stand up for your rights. As a victim, you may be entitled to compensation and support for the losses you've suffered.
