BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) -- A Democratic candidate fresh off a primary win for a state house seat is accused of hitting a car, then leaving the scene of the accident.

Christina Ayala, 29, clinched the nomination Tuesday night and the very next day police say she crashed into another car.

The victim's mother, Mireja Porto says she's lucky her 26-year-old daughter Krystal Velez survived, while looking at a picture of the twisted mangled car.

"We're just trying to deal," said Porto, "my daughter's upstairs in bed, she's not well, her head hurts, her neck hurts, her back hurts, she's in lots of pain."

...

Witnesses say Ayala ran a red light and hit the front of Velez's car.

...

News 8 tried talking to Ayala, but all we found was some of her campaign signs and a beat up car.

Basically, this woman who just won her primary runs a red light, hits a car injuring the woman driving the car, and takes off

A witness to the accident followed the candidate so he could get info for the police. The candidate said she was fearful of the witness so that's why she took off.

But, for Connecticut Democrats, things like this are almost a requirement. She'll fit right in representing Bridgeport

In a deep blue state like CT, this will be a resume enhancement.

Good start by the mom in diffusing the crisis.
Daughter is hurt.
Can’t criticize a hurt person, nor can a hurt person offer an explanation.

So far, so good.

Next step is to get a neckbrace, I’d try Hyannisport if you don’t have one lying around.

Finally, follow the three “D”’s.
-Deny
-Don’t recall
-Don’t worry, because Conn. Dems will still vote for you.

In parts of Bridgeport this is considered classy behavior.

Just for a little political background info: The particular state house district Ayala is running for (the 128th) is central Bridgeport. The outgoing rep for that district is Andres Ayala, Jr. who apparently is running for a state Senate seat this time. Don’t know if he is related to the Ayala involved in the crash or not, though.

What are you talking about? Valez is not at fault and the Mom may very well be telling the entire truth.

I was very surprised myself that the party of the perp was mentioned right up front. But Bridgeport, Waterbury, New Haven, and Hartford are all solidly Democratic cities as well as places the rest of Connecticut residents avoid if at all possible.

Nothing in the local fish wrap about the accident. I’m going to bet that article will have no party mentioned

Leastwise she doesn't need to 'splain a body stuffed in the windshield!

Tell, doesn't she remind you of that woman who drove around three days with a live guy stuck in her windshield?

From the local paper:

“Ayala’s victory kept the 128th District seat in her family. She is the cousin of Andres Ayala, who held the seat for the past six years before deciding to enter a three-way race for the Democratic state senate seat in that same district, in which he claimed victory Tuesday. She is the daughter of Santa Ayala, the Democratic registrar of voters, and Alberto “Tito” Ayala, a former councilman known for his ability to generate votes.”

She got 64% of vote. A local comment on a Bridgeport site said that there was an officer named Ayala on police report. Small world.

So maybe she had reason to fear the witnesses?

We were driving straight across Camden from that bridge from Philadelphia when our car stopped. Fortunately it was a very cold day and nobody wanted to leave their burning trash barrels.

Years ago when we got the Austin paper, a subscriber sent a letter to the editor asking why any negative news article always mentioned the party affiliation (in the title or first sentence) if the person was a Republican.

Many times the party affiliation was left out or way down in the article if the news was against a democrat. The writer said he had to research the person’s name or position to find party affiliation.

The Statesman actually published that letter.

“A picture of the perp, FWIEW.”

If this were a naughty teacher thread, I’d say VERY guilty.

(And I sure would not post that mug more than once.)

Prediction: no consequences. Rules are for little people and Republicans.

Yeah, she was guilty as heck. No mention of it in the article, but I have to wonder if AWI (alcohol was involved).

The witness was a married couple who stopped to help the injured victim. Maybe the candidate was really scared, but I'm going with convenient excuse rather than fear.

I couldn't figure out how I posted the perp's pic twice till I realized that someone else posted the same picture at almost the same time.

Wasn’t blaming anyone — sometimes bad things just happen to good people. Explaining why I didn’t include it in my reply.

Qualified to be elected in CT...
