Driver in Hartford Fatal Wreck Was Speeding

The Courant reports that "Speed appears to be a factor in a weekend wreck on Capitol Avenue that killed the driver." Police say that around 10:45 a.m. Sunday, "Jerry Sturges was driving a 2009 Toyota Corolla west on Capitol Avenue when he lost control in the area of Flower Street." His vehicle continued west, crossed the center line and continued in the eastbound lane, where it eventually struck a stone wall and a metal pole, and came to rest at the intersection of Capitol and Babcock Street. Sturgis, 29, was pronounced dead at Hartford Hospital.
