Connecticut woman, 79, accused of drifting onto shoulder, killing man with her Volkswagen Beetle

A 79-year-old Connecticut woman was charged Monday in the death of a trucker who was struck by her Volkswagen Beetle when it drifted onto the shoulder of a roadway, police and local media reported.

Ramona Rubin, of Derby, was charged with one count of misconduct with a motor vehicle and one count of failure to drive in a proper lane, Town of Orange police said in a news release. She was released on $25,000 bond.

“The arrest stems from a lengthy investigation by the department’s accident reconstruction team into a motor vehicle collision on March 25, 2019, on Derby Avenue in which Ms. Rubin’s vehicle drifted onto the right shoulder of the roadway and fatally struck Steven Sylvester,” the news release said.
