WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — The man who Waterbury Police said caused a deadly rollover crash at an intersection off of Route 8 Monday night now faces multiple charges.
Police arrested 35-year-old Kevin Brevetti of Waterbury Wednesday and charged him with manslaughter, evading responsibility, reckless driving, and theft of a plate. A judge set his bond at $250,000.
At around 8:40 p.m. Monday, police said Brevetti was speeding on the off-ramp of Exit 35 and failed to stop at the red light at the East Aurora Street intersection, hitting a Mazda pickup truck. Police said the Mazda rolled over several times and struck a Lexus that then hit an ambulance, police said.
Brevetti and a female passenger fled his Ford Explorer before officers arrived, according to police.
The driver of the Mazda, who police later identified as 58-year-old Jacqueline Sheppard of Waterbury, was pronounced dead at a hospital. The passenger in the Mazda sustained non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
The driver of the Lexus was not injured. The people in the ambulance sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
The area was shut down for several hours Monday evening but has since reopened.
