Shelton man held on $250,000 bond in fatal hit and run


A Connecticut man charged with striking and killing a 67-year-old pedestrian with his car then fleeing the scene has been held on $250,000 bond.

The Connecticut Post reports that 24-year-old Robert Dominguez, of Shelton, was arraigned Monday on charges of evading responsibility in causing a death and operating an unregistered motor vehicle in the death Friday of Michael Zrelak in Bridgeport.

Dominguez also faces a charge of making a false statement for allegedly telling investigators his car had been stolen. More charges are possible.

Police say witnesses reported a black Mercedes sedan leaving the scene and one even snapped a picture of it. Shortly after the crash, Dominguez reported his car stolen. Police say surveillance video shows him walking away from it.

Dominguez’s lawyer offered condolences to Zrelak’s family.
