WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Police have decided not to cite a woman who hit and critically injured a former Connecticut lawmaker and prominent businessman with her car.
The Republican-American reports authorities found Birgit Clemente’s vision may have been obscured by bushes and a glare from the sun when she struck former Republican state Rep. Selim Noujaim on Oct. 30 in Waterbury.
Noujaim had been placing signs for his nephew, who was running for office. He suffered a head injury and was treated at and released from a hospital.
Police gave Noujaim a verbal warning for hazardous entrance onto a highway.
Noujaim previously told the newspaper he could not remember the crash.
Noujaim’s attorney and Clemente can’t be reached for comment.
