Norwalk man allegedly struck bicyclist in Darien
DARIEN — A 31-year-old Norwalk man was charged with evading responsibility after he allegedly hit a bicyclist at the intersection of Post and West Norwalk roads Aug. 15.
The bicyclist told police he was stopped on the sidewalk waiting to cross the intersection when a gray 2003 Acura stopped and waved for the bicyclist to go. The bicyclist went but while crossing, the car made a left turn onto West Norwalk Road and hit the bicyclist. The driver stopped and asked the bicyclist if he was OK and then left the scene. The bicyclist took a picture of the license plate on the Acura before it drove away.
Around 3:35 p.m., shortly after the incident occurred, officers located the owner of the Acura, Lamar Langley of Newtown Avenue. Langley admitted to almost hitting the bicyclist, but said he never actually hit him. However, police found damage on Langley’s vehicle consistent with the impact described by the bicyclist.
Langley was issued a misdemeanor summons for evading responsibility and failing to yield while turning left. He was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford Aug. 28.
