Westports Splash restaurant at the Inn at Longshore played an unwitting role in a fatal car crash on I-95 that led to a two-year prison sentence Friday for a New York woman.
According to an account in the Advocate of Stamford, the woman, Jan Jepsen, 38, had dinner there with her boss on May 8, 2001. During the meal—appetizers and three bottles of wine that ran up a $410.26 tab, her boss told her she and her entire department were being laid off.
The court heard that following the meal, she got on I-95 the wrong way. She drove up an exit ramp, then went northbound in the southbound lanes for one to two miles before smashing into a car driven by Sidney Davi, 27, who worked at Fairfields transfer station. He died instantly.
