A brief court hearing was held yesterday in the drunk driving case against a state trooper accused of injuring a woman and her daughter in a Southbury crash. 

Prosecutors in the case against Sgt John McDonald asked the judge for a continuance at the request of an attorney for the victims.  McDonald has not entered a plea on charges of DUI, assault with a motor vehicle, reckless driving and failure to obey a stop sign. 

The case was continued to May 6th. 

McDonald is accused of running a stop sign after leaving a colleague’s retirement party, where he was seen drinking prior to the crash.  McDonald was not given a Breathalyzer test at the scene before being taken to a hospital, which he left before staff could take blood tests. 

52-year old Lisa Conroy suffered an eye injury and 19-year-old Madison Conroy sustained injuries to her arm and wrist. 

There is an ongoing state police internal affairs investigation into the party.
