An arrest has been made in the hit and run case that claimed the life of Tom Steinert-Threlkeld of Weston, Conn.
Alexander Scott Lee, 21, of New Milford was arrested Tuesday, Dec. 3, and faces charges including evading responsibility for a fatal accident, making an improper left turn and tampering with evidence.
On Oct. 20, Tom was riding his bicycle in Bethel, when Lee hit him with his car. Tom was knocked to the ground and a second car ran over him, pinning him underneath. Tom had to be extricated by the fire department and later died from his injuries.
After Lee hit Tom, he fled the scene.
