Police responded to a two-vehicle-crash with minor injuries at the intersection of Route 110 and Wheeler Road Tuesday afternoon.
Robert Twomey, 22, of Shelton, was heading north on Wheeler Road in his Honda Civic when he stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Route 110 and mistakenly thought it was a four-way-stop, according to police.
Twomey pulled out and was struck by a Ford Fusion heading east on Shelton Road (Route 110), according to the report.
Police Capt. Keith White said it was the tenth crash at the intersection in 2019. The Sun ran a story analyzing the dangerous intersection with a poll of readers’ opinions in August and the town trimmed back trees to improve sight-lines later that month.
Twomey was not injured, but was issued an infraction for failure to grant the right-of-way.
The other driver, Lorrell Gayle, 25, of East Haven, had minor injuries, according to police.
