FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Brooklyn man was arrested Sunday when he drove off an I-95 exit ramp and hit signs and a standing traffic signal post before fleeing the scene with his passenger, police said.
Rayon Williams, 20, of Maple Street, was charged with evading responsibility, failure to drive right, failure to obey a traffic signal and operating without a license, police said.
Witnesses who saw the noon crash said the driver drove through the stop light at the base of Exit 24 northbound and went around a car waiting there before striking signs and the pole on the left shoulder heading into the traffic circle.
They gave police a description of Williams and his passenger, who were found walking south on Black Rock Turnpike.
Upon questioning, Williams admitted he was driving the car. He posted $1,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on July 24.
His passenger was sent on his way.
