BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A 29-year-old Bridgeport Democrat running for the state House of Representatives was charged with leaving the scene of a car accident a day after winning a primary.

The Connecticut Post reports that Christina Ayala was involved in a car accident in Bridgeport Wednesday night, left the scene and was flagged down by a witness who followed her. She was charged with evading responsibility, failure to obey a traffic signal and failure to renew her vehicle’s registration.

Police say no one was seriously hurt in the accident.

Ayala did not immediately return a call for comment Thursday. She declined to comment when contacted by the Post. Police said she told officers she left the scene because she was scared of a man who was yelling at her.

Ayala won Tuesday’s primary for the 128th District seat.
