New Milford Man Arrested in Fatal Bicycle Accident Case
New Milford police arrested Alexander Scott Lee, on Tuesday of this week, in connection with the October 20, 2013 accident that killed Thomas Steinert-Threlkeld. Lee, 21, was arrested for evading responsibility for the fatal hit-and-run accident, making an improper left turn and tampering with evidence, New Milford police reported. It was reported that Lee was in the process of turning his car onto Route 302 from Old Hawleyville Road as the Steinert-Threlkeld was approaching on Route 302 from the other direction at which point in time the bicycle collided with the rear passenger side of the vehicle which threw the bicyclist to the ground. Moments later, a second vehicle turned onto Route 302 and struck Steinert-Threlkeld and pinned him underneath the car. Lee was arrested at his job in Brookfield on Tuesday and is being held on $150,000 bond and will be arraigned in the Danbury Superior Court on Wednesday.
