WILTON, Conn. — A 29-year-old Norwalk man was arrested early Monday after rolling a car on Route 7 while allegedly trying to evade pursuing police officers, police said.
Luigi Lombardi, 125 Perry Ave., was driving a 2003 Lexus with three 28-year-old passengers when he failed to dim his high beams as a police officer approached from the southbound lane of Route 7 near Honey Hill Road, according to Wilton police.
When the officer turned around to pull Lombardi over, he sped up, leading the officer on a chase, according to police.
Lombardi made it about 2 miles before losing control of the Lexus near a curve at New Street, striking a guardrail in the southbound lane of Route 7, sliding across the rail for about 58 feet, moving into the northbound lane, rolling over and landing in the northbound shoulder, police said.
Lombardi and his passengers were all evaluated by Georgetown Fire Department EMS after the 1:42 a.m. crash, police said. While one of the 28-year-olds sustained minor injuries, none required additional treatment, police said.
Lombardi was arrested and charged with failure to dim high beams, failure to keep right on a curve and traveling too fast, according to police. He is scheduled to appear May 6 in court.
