Danbury Police have charged a Brookfield man for a striking and killing a man in a head-on accident last year on Padanaram Road. 35-year old Jason Bernardez was charged Tuesday for the fatal two car crash near Jeanette Street on the evening of last June 24th. He was allegedly intoxicated, speeding and using his cell phone just before the crash. 34-year old Corey Ward of Naugatuck was killed when Bernardez’s northbound Audi crossed over into the southbound lane at a high rate of speed. According to the arrest warrant, Bernardez told police he was being tailgated and increased his speed to create distance and lost control. An investigation determined that he was travelling at about 65 miles an hour in the 35 mph zone. His blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. Police say phone records showed him using it within seconds prior to the collision.
