NEW CANAAN - The woman accused in a fatal hit-and-run crash in New Canaan appeared in court today.

According to police, Kate Regan, 32, struck and killed 82-year-old Krishna Jayaraman as he was getting mail outside his home on Oenoke Ridge Road in August.

Officials say Regan continued to drive to a nearby service station in Pound Ridge where she reported that there was damage to her right side mirror. They say pieces of her mirror were found at the scene of the accident.

Regan's attorney told News 12 Connecticut that she submitted a statement to police and has cooperated with the investigation, despite a report that says she declined to meet with police.

Regan is facing charges including involuntary manslaughter. Her attorney has asked that the case be continued Jan. 4.
