The “hit and run” accident as described in Westfield Detective Lieutenant Leo Lugo’s reports (see previous story) took place in a “secured” area of the Westfield DPW’s conservation center on Lambertsmill Rd.
The “secured area” as noted by Westfield’s lead detective, is a locked gated area known as the Westfield police department’s impound lot where numerous vehicles and equipment are stored.
The “secured” lot is currently occupied by military surplus vehicles obtained by the police department, a pall barn housing police department vehicles and equipment, and other vehicles seized and stored by the authority of the Westfield police department.
It is in this “secured” lot that a “hit and run” accident took place involving Westfield police chief David Wayman and subsequently reported by Detective Lieutenant Leo Lugo.
