February 22, 2019

REDDING — A Bethel man was ticketed for running a stop sign, driving without a license and possessing alcohol under the legal limit following a single-vehicle crash Saturday night.

Lucas Visconti was driving eastbound on Umpawaug Road around 8 p.m. when he blew through a stop sign and crashed into a cement bridge abutment at the Route 53 intersection.

The 19-year-old did not have a driver’s license, said police, and alcohol was found inside his badly damaged 2016 Ford Fusion.

Police said Visconti was not intoxicated at the time of the crash.
