A man has been charged in connection to a Westport highway crash that killed a child.
Thirty-year-old Jesse Zorski of Freeport, Maine turned himself in to the state police in Bridgeport Friday on an active arrest warrant.
Zorski was driving a car that rear-ended another car in April 2017. A 9-year-old boy in the front car suffered a serious head injury and later died.
He is charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle, following too close, distracted driving and speeding.
Zorski was released after posting a $100,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court in May. An attorney for Zorski was not immediately identified.
