Two injured, one arrested in Tuesday evening crash

Two people were sent to area hospitals Tuesday after a crash in the intersection of Farmington and Burlington avenues.
After an investigation, a Bristol man, Jose Cruz, 22, was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, making a restricted turn, and was operating without operator’s license. Cruz was traveling eastbound on Farmington Avenue Tuesday evening, when he made an improper left turn onto Burlington Avenue and collided with a 2004 Cadillac Deville, being operated by 75-year-old David Davio, a release said, who was westbound on Farmington Avenue and traveling straight through the intersection of Burlington Avenue.
Davio had a minor leg injury but declined treatment, and his passenger 78-year-old
Virginia Davio received head and chest injuries. She was transported by Bristol EMS to a
Waterbury hospital. The Davio’s are residents of Middlebury. The front seat passenger in Cruz’s vehicle, 22-year-old Orlando Augustine had a head injury and was transported to a Hartford area hospital by Bristol EMS, the release said. As of last Wednesday, both passengers were listed in stable condition. Cruz and a third passenger in Cruz’s vehicle, 22-year-old Fernando Cruz were not injured.
Cruz was arrested and held on a $10,000 bond and was expected to appear in Bristol Superior Court on Wednesday.
