Troopers from the Royalton Barracks responded to numerous 911 calls of an erratic operator in the Woodstock area early Sunday afternoon. While responding, Troopers received updated information advising that the vehicle was now in Pomfret and that it was stuck in a ditch and on fire. Troopers located the vehicle and operator on Sessions Road in Pomfret. The driver made it safely from the vehicle. Investigation revealed that Kyle Zenlea, 29, of Bethel was driving under the influence, and Zenlea was taken into custody for the offense.
Subsequently, the fire from the crash caused a brush fire and the Teago Fire Department responded to drench the fire.
