Police who arrived at the scene of a car accident on Haskell Lane last May found a vehicle stuck on a rock wall, with the driver still inside. Darien police gave this account of what happened, including accusations not proven in court:
Police received a call about the accident at 9:17 p.m. on May 19. When they spoke with the driver, Charles Bazelais, 26, police could smell alcohol on his breath and saw his eyes were glassy. He was treated at the scene by Darien EMS-Post 53 and taken by ambulance to Stamford Hospital. Police didn’t announce any information about his condition.
