A Sandy Hook man is facing charges in a deadly crash that happened in May last year.
Connecticut State Police said 64-year-old Gerard Mauskapf had pulled over to the right shoulder on I-84 east near the exit 11 ramp.
When he exited his car, he was hit by a car being driven by 18-year-old Michael Vitti.
Police said it was determined that Vitti was distracted when this happened, however, it was not by a cell phone.
He was arrested and charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle, failure to drive in proper lane, and distracted driving.
He’s expected to appear in court on March 20.
