ROCKY HILL — A man has been taken into custody by Rocky Hill Police following a serious motor vehicle accident last December, where he was allegedly driving under the influence.

On Dec. 31, Rocky Hill Police responded to a collision on West Street at the intersection with Gilbert Avenue, which resulted in serious injuries to an unidentified driver.

The operator of the second vehicle, David Ferrari, 34, of Haddam, was involved in the incident.

Officer Brandon Caires and the Mid-State Accident Reconstruction Squad conducted the investigation and determined that Ferrari was impaired at the time of the accident.

Ferrari, who was on a court-ordered GPS bracelet due to pending cases in Middletown, cut off the device days after the crash and fled Connecticut.

After extensive investigative work, including obtaining multiple search and seizure warrants, the police secured an arrest warrant with nationwide extradition from the Judicial District of New Britain.

Ferrari’s whereabouts were discovered through collaboration with various law enforcement agencies.

He was apprehended on the morning of April 23 and now faces charges including third-offense DUI, reckless driving, operating under suspension from a previous alcohol-related incident, second-degree assault with a motor vehicle, and first-degree reckless endangerment.

The court held Ferrari on a $1,000,000 cash or surety bond and is scheduled for a court appearance at G.A. 15 New Britain Superior Court on April 24.

In addition, Ferrari had three active arrest warrants for first-degree failure to appear in Middletown, leading to a $2,500,000 court-ordered bond.
