A pedestrian was killed in New Haven early yesterday morning.
A few minutes before 4:00 a.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to 662 Middletown Avenue (Route 17) after receiving reports of a pedestrian accident in the area. A 32-year-old man with critical injuries was found at the scene. The victim allegedly threw himself onto the path of a passing vehicle. The driver of the car that hit him immediately stopped. Residents in the area have complained about overspeeding on that roadway, and officials are currently looking at these complaints. The crash is currently under investigation. More information, including the identities of those involved, will be provided when appropriate.
Details already available in this case are presenting conflicting evidence related to the cause of the crash. That said, investigators will always study all possible angles in establishing liability in these scenarios. It’s important to point out that people injured in these incidents (or their families), if determined not to be responsible, have various options they can discuss with their legal counsel, including filing for damages.
