Nine months after a fatal hit and run accident in Hartford a suspect has been arrested. In the early morning hours of March 27, Robert Suljoti, a 46-year-old man from Wethersfield, was on his way to work, crossing Retreat Avenue toward Hartford Hospital, when he was struck by a car. The gray Acura was said to have been traveling at a high rate of speed when it struck Suljoti and drove away. Later that day police found the car crashed into a fence on Maxim Road in the South End. The accident killed Suljoti. The driver was not immediately apprehended.
At the time, and for months after, police urged someone to come forward with information about the crash. However, leads grew cold and though a man wanted for questioning was sought there were no arrests made in connection to the case.
Now, nearly a year later, a man has been taken in for questioning. Hartford police had been looking for the suspect and he was finally apprehended on outstanding arrest warrants from Windsor, Conn. Though the accident is still under open investigation police hope that the apprehension of the suspect will put them one step closer to making an arrest.
