Justin Smith, 32, of Cos Cob was charged by Wilton police with engaging in pursuit, reckless driving, evading responsibility, driving without insurance, disobeying the signal of an officer, possession of less than one-half ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia after he fled the scene of a two-car accident on Route 7 near Kent Road.
An officer responded to the accident, and while there, saw a gold Civic, the same car the victim reported being rear-ended by. When the officer saw the car, he turned on his lights and Smith took off. The officer finally caught up with the driver at Old Belden Hill Road.
Smith was held on $250 bond and is due in court Feb. 4.
