Oxford, CT (May 24, 2019) – On May 22, police and emergency crews responded to the scene of a pedestrian accident in the parking lot of the Oxford Liquor Shoppe on Oxford Road.
According to reports, 73-year-old Stephen Kovzel Jr. attempted to exit his vehicle without placing it in park. As Kovzel stepped out of the jeep, it moved backward. Kovzel was knocked to the ground by the door on the vehicle.
As the vehicle continued in reverse, it ran over Kovzel and crashed into a vehicle behind it. The Jeep continued in reverse until it struck a steel guard rail in the northbound lane of Oxford Road.
Kovzel sustained serious injuries in the incident and was transported to an area hospital for medical treatment.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Kovzel at this time.
