A 75-year-old man was injured when his vehicle was struck by a mini-van on I-84 westbound in Waterbury, according to state police.
Police say Jeremiah Wallace, 75, of Waterbury, was driving his Honda CR-V in the right lane around 3:30 p.m. Saturday when a Chrysler Town & Country mini-van driven by Nicole Mullen, 35, of Waterbury, started to merge from the center lane and struck Wallace’s vehicle. Wallace then lost control of the Honda, which spun around and came to a stop blocking the left and center lanes of traffic, according to police.
Police say Wallace was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. Mullen refused medical treatment from EMS.
The mini-van Mullen was driving is owned by Helping People Excel Inc. of Meriden, a company that provides in-home nursing support services.
Police say charges are pending.
