Man Charged in Crash That Killed Cheshire Teen

State police have arrested a 23-year-old Berlin man in connection with a crash that killed a Cheshire teen last December.

Police arrested Anthony Longo on Friday in connection with the crash that killed Isabella Gozzo, 19, early on the morning of Dec. 13, 2014. Friends said Gozzo and Longo had been dating.

Longo was behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution when he lost control of the vehicle on Route 9 in Berlin around 2:15 a.m. on Dec. 13, 2014. Gozzo was thrown from the vehicle after it hit a light pole and a rock wall and flipped over.

She pronounced dead several hours later, according to police.

Longo’s blood alcohol level was .154, almost double the legal limit, and he had marijuana in his system that night, according to state police.

Longo has been charged with second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle, driving under the effects of drugs or alcohol, second-degree assault with a motor vehicle and failure to drive in an established lane.

He was released and is scheduled to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Sept. 17.
