Darien police have arrested an 89-year-old driver in connection with hit and run accident that injured a teenager on Sunday.
Plepis told police he thought he had struck a branch on the side of the road and that is why he did not stop at the accident scene.
The 15-year-old pedestrian who was hit suffered a severe head injury but is now resting at home.
Plepis was released from police custody and will appear in court March 12.
The accident remains under investigation.
