A Danbury man has been arrested for causing a serious crash on Franklin Street Extension two months ago.  Police arrested Edgar Patricio Farfan-Lazso last week on charges of driving without insurance, having a suspended license, traveling unreasonably fast and failure to drive right.  The single car crash on April 22nd involved a utility pole near the intersection with Raymond Place.  The road was shut down for hours and the 38-year old and his passenger were hospitalized.  The pole snapped at the base and downed a transformer.  Farfan-Lazso told police a rubber floor mat got stuck under the pedals, but witness statements to police suggested speed was a factor. He was released on bond for arraignment on June 17 at Danbury Superior Court.
