SHELTON, Conn. — A 25-year-old Shelton man was arrested on DUI charges after he was involved in a hit-and-run accident early on July 15 in Milford, police said.

At 2:04 a.m., Milford officers responded to a motor vehicle accident on Factory Lane near New Haven Avenue, police said.

The car involved in the crash fled the scene, but officers found the vehicle with heave font end damage a short time later in the Milford Library parking lot, police said.

The driver, 25-year-old John Collins of 296 Soundview Ave., provided a breath sample, which showed him to have an elevated blood alcohol content.

Collins was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, evading responsibility and failure to drive right. He was released on $500 bond for an Aug. 10 court date.
