    A Fairfield County man who was involved in a three-vehicle crash that injured several people, including himself, has been charged in connection with the accident.  Fernando Ramirez, age 31, of Westport, has been charged with reckless driving and reckless endangerment in connection with the Nov. 14, three-vehicle crash on Post Road West, in Westport. During the crash, Ramirez was driving a vehicle that hit a car turning into an area business sending it across several lanes where it was struck by another vehicle, said Westport Police Lt. David Wolf. All three vehicles sustained heavy damage. Ramirez was injured and transported to the hospital for treatment. A follow-up investigation found that Ramirez was driving recklessly and at excessive speeds, said Wolf. Based upon the results of the investigation, an arrest warrant was subsequently sought and granted for Ramirez.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Jan. 25.
    A 29-year-old man who reported that his handgun had been stolen out of his unlocked vehicle has been charged with reckless endangerment in Fairfield County. Tyler Burchard, of Stamford, reported that his 9mm Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol was stolen last week out of the unlocked center console of his car, which parked in the driveway of his home, said Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin said. Burchard was also charged with the unsafe storage of a firearm in a vehicle, Conklin said. He was released after posting a $5,000 bond. Conklin said the department has seen "an explosion" of people who have applied for a concealed weapon and gun permits. But, Conklin added, those same people need to be educated about the responsibility that comes with gun ownership. "Gun owners need to help keep them out of the wrong hands and properly store the weapons," he said. If Buchard had locked the doors of his vehicle and the gun was still stolen, he would have been charged with improperly storing his weapon due to a law that requires weapons to...
