Berlin – Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Crash
A pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run incident in Berlin late Wednesday evening.
Local authorities are currently investigating an incident that occurred in front of 319 New Britain Road. At approximately 10:40 p.m., officials responded to reports of the incident and discovered a pedestrian who was killed after getting hit by an unidentified vehicle. Instead of stopping, the driver of the car fled the area. The victim’s identity has yet to be released as family members/next of kin are still being contacted. Authorities are now looking for the suspect and are asking anyone who may have relevant info to contact them as soon as possible.
Hitting a pedestrian while operating a vehicle is already a serious offense, and instances of hit-and-run will only make things worse for suspects. Authorities are expected to exhaust all means to establish accountability and bring these culprits to justice. This process can also benefit injured parties because they may have the option of filing for damages in specific cases and with the help of expert legal counsel.
