Man Charged in Fatal Tractor-Trailer Crash in Hartford

A tractor-trailer driver has been charged in connection with a fatal crash in Hartford in February.

On February 21, 2019, 77-year-old Carl Loven was hit by a tractor-trailer at the intersection of High Street and Walnut Street. He died of his injuries.
