WESTPORT, Conn. A 32-year-old Westport man faces a drunken-driving charge in connection to a scooter versus car accident that happened on Post Road East last month, police said.
In the May 4 accident, scooter rider Thomas Winston collided with a car at Post Road East and Imperial Avenue. A subsequent investigation showed that Winston, of Saugatuck Avenue, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
Winston turned himself in to police Saturday. In addition to operating under the influence of alcohol, a misdemeanor, he was charged with failure to wear a helmet and operating a scooter without the proper license. He was released after posting $2,500 bond and is due in court July 3.
