WESTPORT, Conn. Bridgeport resident Gilcilene Suzano was turned over to Westport police by state police last Friday on a warrant charging her with leaving the scene of an accident.
Police said that Suzano, 49, struck a vehicle from behind while driving on Post Road West in September, backed up, then continued driving. A witness provided police with Suzano's license plate number and it was determined through an investigation that she was driving at the time of the accident.
Suzano was charged with evading responsibility, operating under suspension and following too closely. She was released after posting a $2,500 bond and is due on court on Jan. 23.
