LEDYARD, Conn. (AP) - Ledyard police say a 29-year-old man was killed while fleeing from a traffic stop when his car slammed into a stone wall and then struck a utility pole.
Police say they signaled Ernest Caldwell III of Ledyard to pull over on Iron Street at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday to ticket him for a minor traffic infraction. They say he sped away instead, and officers did not pursue him.
They say Caldwell lost control of the car, hit the wall and the pole and was ejected from the vehicle, suffering fatal head injuries.
The road was closed until 7 a.m. Friday as police investigated the accident.
