STAMFORD - A Darien man charged with evading responsibility in connection with a hit-and-run crash in Darien two weeks ago appeared in court Friday.

Paul Plepis, 89, is accused of hitting Jacob Eekhof while he was driving along Hoyt Street.

Police say Plepis told them he did not realize he had hit anyone and turned himself in after hearing media reports of the accident.

Eekhof, 15, is still recovering from his injuries.
