New Haven – Pedestrian Killed In Crash

Authorities are looking for a motorist who struck and killed a pedestrian in New Haven Monday evening.

At around 8:00 p.m., 44-year-old Gilberto Molina was walking near the intersection of Columbus Avenue and West Street when a still-unidentified vehicle hit him. Responders quickly arrived on-site and transported the victim to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he eventually died yesterday (Tuesday). Authorities are now investigating leads and reports that could help them apprehend the hit-and-run motorist. New Haven Police officials are encouraging witnesses and anyone with relevant info to contact their office as soon as possible.

Pedestrians are frequently injured or killed when motorists exhibit negligent or reckless behavior, such as driving under the influence and other factors. Suffice it to say, these culprits have to be stopped from hurting or killing more people. On the other hand, victims or their families should be given sufficient opportunities to cope and find closure. Bringing suspects to justice and allowing aggrieved parties to file claims against culprits are important steps toward this goal.
