Courant Staff Report

July 19, 2006

A juvenile received a written warning Tuesday for failing to stop at a red light when the bicycle he was riding collided with a car driven by Superior Court Judge Wendy Susco, police said.

Susco said she was heading east on Homestead Avenue Tuesday morning when the bicycle struck her car as she proceeded through a green light at Woodland Street in Hartford, police said.

Susco stopped to see whether the boy was OK and then proceeded to work, where she called police, police said.

Police said the boy cut his leg but refused medical treatment from ambulance workers. He later went for treatment at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center after his mother was called.
