DERBY — A local man was arrested Monday in connection with a deadly August incident in which he allegedly struck and killed an 85-year-old pedestrian.
An arrest warrant was issued Monday charging 26-year-old Eric Miller, of Derby with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle and windshield obstructed view, according to Derby police.
The charges stemmed from an Aug. 12, 2019, motor vehicle accident in which Miller’s motor vehicle allegedly struck an 85-year-old female pedestrian on Ninth Street in Derby. It was just after 7 a.m.
An ambulance transported the woman to a hospital in Bridgeport, where she later died from her injuries.
The victim was Seymour Avenue resident Angelina Borrelli — a member of a prominent Valley family.
She was the mother of Jerry Borrelli, a member of the city’s Board of Apportionment and Taxation; the mother of Peter Borrelli, who owns the Seccombe’s Monument Co. in Ansonia; and the mother-in-law of Debra Borrelli, a member of the city’s Board of Education.Miller stayed at the scene after the crash and authorities said at the time that he was cooperating with the investigation.Police said an investigation determined that Miller’s front windshield was obscured from condensation coupled with heavy sun glare that prevented him from being able to see the roadway in front of him when he struck the pedestrian.Miller turned himself in when advised of the warrant. He was released on a promise to appear in court on Feb. 13.
