Longtime postal worker, suspected DUI driver killed in crash

ENFIELD - Authorities have released the names of a longtime mail carrier and a Rocky Hill man who died in a crash Thursday after local officers chased the Rocky Hill man's vehicle on suspicions he was intoxicated, WFSB reports.

The crash occurred over the state line in Longmeadow, Mass. Thursday morning after Enfield officers chased a pickup truck driven by 47-year-old David Cersosimo, of Rocky Hill, on suspicion he was driving while intoxicated.

Cersosimo's truck crashed into a mail truck driven by Dan Nacin, a 40-year employee of the Enfield Post Office.

Initial reports indicated that the two men had suffered potentially life-threatening injuries in the crash which occurred on Route 5 in Longmeadow, Mass.

Video and photos from the scene showed debris including mail packages strewn across Route 5, which was shut down during the investigation, the AP said.

Enfield police tried twice to pull Cersosimo over after he was observed failing to obey roads and appeared intoxicated.

Enfield police declined to comment on whether officers had chased him over the state line where the crash occurred.

It appears Cersosimo traveled four miles from where officers had first tried to pull him over to the site of the crash, WFSB said.
