NEW CANAAN, Conn. — A New Canaan woman has pleaded not guilty in a drunk driving investigation dating back to March, according to the state’s judicial website.
According to New Canaan Police, on Mar. 28 a vehicle being driven by Cybelle Santodomingo, 43, of New Canaan crossed the center line on Silvermine Road and hit a vehicle heading in the other direction near the curve at Carter Street. Police reported that they were unable to talk to Santodomingo on the scene and that they smelled alcohol and she appeared intoxicated.
The officers were able to speak to the other driver, a 58-year-old New Canaan resident, at the scene, an email from Sgt. Carol Ogrinc, public information officer for New Canaan Police Department, said. Both drivers were taken to the hospital for treatment, the email said.
The suspect was driving a 2013 Mercedes station wagon and the other driver a 2011 BMW, the email said.
Santodomingo turned herself in on June 10 on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and failure to drive to the right, the email said. She was released on a surety bond, and is scheduled to appear in court again on Aug. 26, according to the state’s judicial website.
