Car Flips Over Near Norwalk School

A Kia sedan went airborne Thursday after a retired city  employee decided to "mess with" some former co-workers on Calf Pasture Beach Road, Norwalk Police say. The car flew over the snow-covered median strip in front of Marvin Elementary School, hit a pickup truck and flipped over.

The 58-year-old driver, a former Department of Public Works employee, was bleeding from his head and was taken to Norwalk Hospital. The 80-year-old driver of the pickup truck was not injured. Both are Norwalk residents.

Police suspect alcohol was a factor in the accident, which happened just before 1 p.m. They say there was an open bottle of beer in plain view in the car and several unopened cans of beer. None of the doors would open, but police were able to retrieve the evidence through a window. Police say the driver smelled of alcohol.

Officers say the Kia's driver told them he spotted his former co-workers as he drove north on Calf Pasture Road. They were on the other side of the road, but he wanted to "goof with them." There were 40 yards of tire marks in the road. The investigation is ongoing.
