Watertown, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - Two pedestrians were seriously injured Thursday night and state police say a man is responsible for causing the crash on Route 8 in Watertown.
The incident ocurred just before 9:00 p.m. on the northbound side of the highway near exit 37.
Troopers say a vehicle driven by 44-year-old Jason Torsiello left the right side of the road, hitting a parked vehicle and pushing it into the two victims, who were apparently changing a flat tire.
The pedestrians sustained serious injuries.
Police say they suspected Torsiello was under the influence and he was administered a field sobriety test, which he failed.
He is being charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failure to drive in the proper lane, and two counts of assault.
Bond was set at $750,000.
