Restricted Turn

Newtown police officers were dispatched to the area of 34 Jeremiah Road on Friday, December 4, at 7:40 am, for a reported one-car accident.

Following a brief investigation on scene it was determined that a 2017 Dodge Charger SXT operated by Soeradj Mansaran, 25, of Sandy Hook, had been traveling east on Jeremiah.

The Charger ran off the roadway while negotiating a left-hand curve in the roadway, and struck a mailbox on the eastbound shoulder of the roadway. The car then traveled across the driveway of 30 Jeremiah Road before striking an embankment by the driveway of 34 Jeremiah.

Mansaran told police that a white work van traveling west in the middle of the road forced Mansaran off the eastbound shoulder of the roadway.

Mansaran and a passenger in the vehicle were both wearing seat belts at the time of the incident. Air bags did not deploy. No injuries were reported.

Mansaran was issued a verbal warning for making a restricted turn.
