SUFFIELD, Conn. (WWLP) – A man is facing drunken driving charges after he allegedly left a crash site in Agawam and tried to hide from Suffield, Connecticut, police in the woods.
Suffield Police Captain Christopher McKee told 22News 50-year-old Sergey Domnenko, of Agawam, left the area of Mapleton Ave and Hickory Street after being involved in a car crash.
