Georgia Man Charged with DUI Following 3-Vehicle Crash in Seymour, CT
A Georgia man was charged with driving under the influence following a three-vehicle crash that left two people injured in Seymour on Wednesday night.
The crash reportedly occurred shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Great Hill Road. Police, medics, and the fire department all responded to the scene of the crash.
Upon arrival, officers determined that a Dodge Ram pickup truck being driven by 36-year-old Georgia man Deonte Glass was traveling north on Great Hill Road and crossed over the center line before side-swiping a Ford Mustang heading south.
After the truck sideswiped the Mustang, Glass allegedly continued driving north and collided with a Toyota Prius that was also traveling south.
The Mustang driver was uninjured, but two people in the Prius were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
An investigating officer interviewed Glass and conducted a field sobriety test after noticing an apparent odor of alcohol on his breath. Glass allegedly failed all of these tests. He was charged with DUI and failure to drive right.

Lawsuits For People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Connecticut
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers, helping them seek and find the financial compensation they need and deserve for injury-related damages. Brian has offered got share some insight regarding the legal options available to drunk driving crash victims in Connecticut:
If you’re injured by a drunk driver anywhere in the United States, you’ll generally have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against that drunk driver. But in Connecticut and most other states, your legal options don’t end here. In some cases, people who have been injured by drunk drivers also may have grounds for a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who served the drunk driver prior to the crash.
In Connecticut, alcohol vendors can be sued for alcohol-related injuries caused by their customers if the vendor continued to serve the customer after he or she had become visibly intoxicated.
For example, let’s say Steve is at The Irish Tavern and has had several drinks. He has begun to stumble and slur his words, showing visible signs of intoxication. If the bartender continues serving drinks to Steve and Steve goes on to cause a drunk driving crash that injures others after leaving the bar, those injured may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against Steve and a dram shop lawsuit against The Irish Tavern for overserving.
You can learn more about your legal options after being hit by a drunk driver in Connecticut by contacting an experienced drunk driving victims lawyer.
