Police Make Arrest In Fatal September Crash

WATERBURY, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ A Waterbury man was arrested at his home Saturday for his involvement in a crash in Oxford in September that left a young girl dead.

Garrett Baker, 30, of 84 Deering Ln., was taken into police custody at his home Saturday morning and charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle, reckless driving, failure to drive right and distracted driving.

He was released on a $75,000 surety bond, due in Derby Superior Court March 3.

Back on Sept. 11, Oxford police responded to a two-vehicle head-on crash on Route 188 (Quaker Farms Road) between Hogsback Road and Hawkins Road.

Police say Baker crossed the middle line and hit a car driven by Amy Williams, of Oxford. Her 3-year-old daughter Lily was in the car and later died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Everyone else survived the crash.
