On March 12, 2011 at approximately 2:30 am, the Darien Police Department responded to a serious motor vehicle accident on Brookside Rd. near Granaston Ln. Upon arrival officers determined that a 2001 Chevy Suburban was traveling northbound but then left the roadway and struck a utility pole. The vehicle severed the utility pole and then struck a stone wall and several trees. The operator, a 19 year old Darien man, was the only occupant of the vehicle and was severely injured as a result of the collision. Darien EMS transported the injured operator to Stamford Hospital where his condition is unknown.
