In Hartford, Connecticut, a man named Alex Oyola-Sanchez has been accused of hitting and killing a state trooper, Trooper First Class Aaron Pelletier, during a traffic stop on Interstate 84 in Southington. The incident occurred on Thursday afternoon. Witnesses reported seeing Oyola-Sanchez hit Pelletier and admitted to the crime after the collision.

According to the investigation report released by the Department of Public Safety, Oyola-Sanchez confessed to using drugs before the incident. He claimed to have taken 15 bags of fentanyl one at a time, powdered cocaine, and a pill he believed to be klonopin from a street drug dealer. He was taken to a hospital for a blood test and showed signs of impairment.

Oyola-Sanchez was charged with several offenses, including second-degree manslaughter, failure to renew registration, illegal operation of a motor vehicle without minimum insurance, evading a fatal motor vehicle accident scene, illegal operation of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol/drugs, failure to drive in a proper lane, illegal operation with out a license, and other related charges. He was arraigned from a hospital bed on Friday afternoon.

Oyola-Sanchez has a criminal history. He was arrested last September for possessing a controlled substance, but the case was dropped. In 2007, he was convicted of third-degree murder and sentenced to six years in prison, but the length of his sentence is unclear. He was also charged with three counts of attempted homicide in the following year, but it is unknown if he served time for those crimes.

His bond was set at $1.5 million and he is due back in court on June 6th. Further investigation into Oyola-Sanchez’s background and the incident is ongoing.
