Eber Perez struck and killed by hit and run car allegedly driven by Debra Bailey

December 21, 2013

A Berlin woman charged with drunk driving faces more charges after the death of a pedestrian she allegedly hit with her car Saturday night.

60-year-old Debra Bailey stopped at the scene on High Road in Berlin but police say she left after firefighters arrived to tend to 36-year-old Eber Perez. Police found Bailey at her home.

Without a blood alcohol test police can still charge someone with drunk driving based on the answers to certain questions.

Police said Perez was returning to a friend's house from a nearby convenience store when he was hit from behind. Medics at the Hospital of Central Connecticut could not save him.

Police want to hear from anyone who knows anything more about the crash, as they build their case against Bailey. She posted bail to avoid jail.
