Connecticut corrections officer arrested in fatal hit-and-run crash in Bridgeport


BRDIGEPORT, Connecticut — A corrections officer has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash that killed a woman in Bridgeport last month.

The Connecticut Post ( reports that Patricia Daniels was arrested Wednesday by Bridgeport police. It was not immediately known whether she has an attorney.

Fifty-one-year-old Evelyn Agyei of Bridgeport was killed when the vehicle she was driving went off the road and hit a tree after being struck several times by a white BMW sport utility vehicle. Her 11-year-old son survived the Dec. 4 accident.

The corrections officer was previously questioned in the accident. The Post reports that paint particles taken from Daniels' front bumper and sent to the state police crime lab matched evidence found on the Subaru's rear bumper.

Police say several witness tips that led them to their suspect.
