A guy named Danilo Rivera, apparently drunk or stoned, had stolen a Mustang in Hartford from a woman who'd left her keys in the car at a car wash, and a few streets later he crashed it into a utility pole. Then he stole a Cavelier from another woman who'd left the car running while she was in a gas station getting directions. She'd also left her 7-year-old son in the car. The guy took off down I-91 and stopped to drop off the kid, and the cop chasing him had to stop to take care of the boy. Further down I-91, near Exit 25N, Rivera crashed yet again, then carjacked an Accord, left the highway, and passed through Wethersfield, Rocky Hill, and Cromwell, where he crashed into a Jeep and a guardrail. While he was trying to steal another car, including the Jeep, several citizens captured him and a Middletown cop arrested him. According to the Hartford Courant, one of cars he'd stolen had also had a rottweiler, which bit him.
The moral of the story is, never leave your keys or children in a car unattended. Rottweilers are optional.
