Governor to Advocate for Road Safety in Wake of Deaths of Two State Employees Killed by Motor Vehicles While on the Job

TUESDAY: GOVERNOR LAMONT ADVOCATES FOR ROAD SAFETY IN THE WAKE OF THE DEATHS OF TWO STATE EMPLOYEES WHO WERE KILLED BY MOTOR VEHICLES WHILE ON THE JOB

 

(HARTFORD, CT) – On Tuesday morning, Governor Ned Lamont will hold a news conference in Wallingford to advocate for road safety in the wake of the recent deaths of two state employees who were killed by motor vehicles while on the job in separate incidents. They include Connecticut State Police Trooper First Class Aaron Pelletier, who was struck and killed by a motor vehicle on May 30 while he was performing a traffic stop on I-84 in Southington, and Connecticut Department of Transportation employee Andrew DiDomenico, who was struck and killed by a motor vehicle on June 28 while he was performing routine maintenance to a greenway that is adjacent to an on and off-ramp connecting to I-91 in Wallingford.

 

“I am outraged by the recent deaths of two state employees who were doing their jobs on behalf of the people of Connecticut when they were struck and killed by motorists in what both appear to be acts of negligent and reckless driving,” Governor Lamont said. “State employees should not have to fear losing their lives while on the job because of the carelessness of drivers who are not showing any respect for those around them.”

 

WHO: Governor Lamont, Transportation Commissioner Garrett Eucalitto, Connecticut State Police Captain Benjamin Borelli

WHAT: News conference advocating for road safety

WHEN: Tuesday, July 2, 2024; 11:00 a.m.

WHERE: Rest Area on I-91 Southbound in Wallingford (the rest area is immediately past Exit 15)
