On 08/07/2019 at approximately 5:56pm, the Plainfield Police Department responded to a reported two-car evading motor vehicle accident that occurred on Norwich Rd (Route 12) near the Plainfield Medical Walk-In Clinic located at 558 Norwich Rd in Plainfield. Upon arriving at the scene an involved operator, 40 year old Amy Royer of Jewett City, advised police that while driving northbound on Norwich Rd a gray colored vehicle exiting the Walk-In Clinic parking lot had struck her vehicle and evaded the scene. Royer, who suffered a back injury as a result of the crash, described the vehicle as a PT Cruiser or similar model and said that the evading vehicle proceeded northbound on Norwich Rd and had sustained front-end damage.
As Officers were on scene waiting for emergency medical personnel and the ambulance to arrive at the scene, a vehicle matching the description provided by Royer was observed traveling southbound on Norwich Rd approaching the accident scene. As an Officer approached the vehicle and signaled and hollered for the operator to stop, the vehicle suddenly accelerated nearly striking the Officer. The vehicle continued southbound on Norwich Rd turning west onto Railroad Ave at a high rate of speed. Officers were able to stop the vehicle on Railroad Ave near Canterbury Rd where the operator, 32 year old Marc D. Kaczor of Brooklyn, CT, was taken into custody for Evading the Scene of an Accident, Failure to Grant the Right-of-Way, Operating Without Insurance, Failure to Obey the Signal of an Officer and Reckless Driving. Kaczor was later released on a $5000 Non-Surety Bond and is scheduled for an appearance in the Danielson Superior Court on 08/19/2019.
Royer sustained a non-life threatening back injury during the crash and was treated at the scene by members of the Plainfield Fire Department and was transported by the American Legion Ambulance to the Plainfield Backus Emergency Care Facility.
