There was some good news yesterday. Bethel police issued a press release saying they have identified the vehicle and the driver involved in the fatal hit and run accident of Tom Steinert-Threlkeld.

The accident occurred on Sunday, Oct. 20. Tom, an expert cyclist, was struck by a vehicle while riding his bike at an intersection in Bethel, CT.

He was on a ride from Weston to Blue Jay Orchards in Bethel, known for their apples and cider doughnuts.

The impact from the hit threw Tom to the ground and a second vehicle turning into the intersection struck him and pinned him underneath the car. He was extricated by firefighters and was declared dead at Danbury Hospital. The first vehicle fled the scene.

Following the accident, police issued a description of the vehicle and the driver, and 11 days later they announced they have identified both.

What happens now?

Nothing can be done to bring Tom back to this world, to his family and friends.

But at least there will be a modicum of closure for those who wondered what happened and why.
