Stamford – Pedestrian Injured After Hit-And-Run
A pedestrian was injured after a hit-and-run incident in Stamford last Saturday.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Selleck Street and Southfield Avenue. A 17-year-old girl was crossing Selleck Street with her dog when a truck traveling north on Southfield Avenue made a left turn on Selleck, hitting her. The victim sustained injuries in the incident. Instead of stopping, 37-year-old truck driver Udiel Chinchilla-Goody left the scene. Authorities eventually caught up to Chinchilla-Goody on Sunnyside Avenue. He is now facing charges of leaving the scene of an accident, operating a vehicle outside his license class, and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
Motorists or pedestrians injured due to negligence or reckless behavior can, under appropriate circumstances, file for damage/compensation claims. These cases can be strengthened by aggravating factors, such as hit-and-run.
