BERLIN — More than 8 months after a deadly crash that killed a Cheshire teen, a man has been arrested and charged with manslaughter.
State Police say Anthony Longo, 22, of Berlin was driving under the influence of alcohol and marijuana the night of December 13, 2014. Traveling down Route 9 South, he lost control of his Mitsubishi Lancer, veered off the road, struck a light pole, a rock wall, and then rolled over several times.
During the collision, the passenger, Isabella Gozzo, 19, of Cheshire, was ejected from the vehicle. She was taken to the hospital where she later died.
Police arrested Longo on Saturday, August 22 and charged him with manslaughter, assault with a motor vehicle, driving under the influence, and failure to drive in established lane. He is due in New Britain superior court on September 17.
