WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Police have decided not to cite a woman who hit and critically injured a former Connecticut lawmaker and prominent businessman with her car.
The Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/2lmOM9q) authorities found Birgit Clemente’s vision may have been obscured by bushes and a glare from the sun when she struck former Republican state Rep. Selim Noujaim Oct. 30 in Waterbury, Connecticut.
