NORWICH – Police Chief Joseph Angelino addressed several public safety developments during Tuesday night’s Common Council meeting, including the replacement of a vehicle that was severely damaged in a Jan. 8 accident on East River Road.
The two-car accident, involving Angelino and Assistant Chief Dale Smith, sent a 5-year-old boy to Upstate Medical with serious injuries.
Angelino said he felt it a necessity for the city to take emergency action regarding replacement of the car, and reported on the insurance recovery and other revenues which might cover the purchase. The total cost of the replacement is still under investigation, he said. The council members concurred, and declared it an emergency situation.
