DARIEN — A 23-year-old Florida man was charged after he allegedly left the scene of a minor car accident at the intersection of Post Road and Corbin Drive.

On May 25 around 5 p.m., Franky Hilario, of 131st Street in Silver Springs, Fla., was attempting to merge out of the right-hand turn lane into the left-hand eastbound lane. As he attempted to merge, the front driver’s side of his car hit the right rear corner of another car. The car then passed him on the left side and veered into oncoming traffic. Hilario drove away.

The victim called police who found Hilario on Raymond Street. He told police he had passed another car at the intersection but didn’t think he’d hit another car.

Both cars had damage consistent with the victim’s account. Hilario was issued a misdemeanor for evading responsibility and improper passing. He’s scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on June 5.
