Waterbury Police have identified the man struck and killed by a car Tuesday night as a New Milford man. Police say 42-year old Merton Larmore was struck on Chase Avenue shortly after 7pm and later died at the hospital from injuries sustained in the crash. Police closed the accident site, and about two hours later, a driver sped into the crash scene, nearly striking investigators. The vehicle reversed, colliding with a police cruiser and another car parked nearby as it fled the area. During the pursuit, Police say the driver tossed an “extensive amount” of heroin outside his vehicle, which officers later recovered. 35-year old Myrice Hodge of Waterbury, faces a number of charges after he crashed into an apartment building where he lived. Drugs were found in and around the vehicle.
