Bridgeport – Intersection Pedestrian Accident
A pedestrian was hit by a car at a Bridgeport intersection yesterday evening.
At approximately 6:16 p.m., local officials were alerted to an incident at the intersection of Park and Shelton Streets. Emergency crews were immediately dispatched to the area and discovered a pedestrian who was injured after getting hit by a passing car. Both the victim and the vehicle have yet to be identified by authorities who are now investigating the incident. The area was blocked off temporarily to allow investigators to collect evidence — the scene has since been cleared. This post will be updated as soon as officials release more info.
It’s only appropriate for authorities to cordon off accident sites so that involved parties can be effectively assisted and crash evidence properly collected. Suffice it to say, if any form of negligence is established in any of these cases, not only will culprits be brought to justice, but victims may also have the option of filing for damages if deemed appropriate by legal experts.
