New Haven – 3-Year-Old Pedestrian Incident Update
Authorities just released more information about last Sunday’s pedestrian incident in New Haven.
A 3-year-old boy was hit by a passing vehicle near the intersection of Howard Avenue and Cassius Street. He sustained serious injuries and was immediately transported to the hospital where he is currently listed as stable. After interviewing witnesses, officials now have a clearer picture of the circumstances surrounding the incident. According to them, there were several people reportedly engaged in an argument in the area, after which a group of women left in a car only to come back soon after. The 3-year-old victim was hit by that vehicle. Instead of stopping, the driver of the car fled the scene. Authorities are still investigating the incident and are asking people with information to contact them as soon as possible.
Officials handling this case are still collecting evidence and witness reports and will continue to do so before identifying the cause of the pedestrian hit. Suffice it to say, if they discover negligence, reckless behavior or even DUI, the family of the victim may have the option of filing for damages as determined by legal experts.
