Winchester – Hit-And-Run Incident
A pedestrian was seriously hurt in a hit-and-run incident in Winchester last Friday evening.
At 7:40 p.m., authorities received reports of an injured pedestrian at the intersection of Main and Union Streets and quickly dispatched emergency teams to the area. According to responders, a male pedestrian was struck by a passing vehicle which then fled the area. 30-year-old Anthony Menard sustained serious injuries in the hit and was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. He was later airlifted (LifeStar) to Hartford Hospital. The whereabouts of the striking vehicle or its driver remains unknown. Officials are currently investigating the incident and are asking witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
LifeStar support is frequently requested in critical scenarios, and that speaks to the possible severity of this incident. While it can be argued that panic plays a part in many hit-and-run incidents, it’s still a serious violation and will only aggravate cases against suspects. These things said, people injured in these scenarios are advised to seek legal help. It’s important that they are given opportunities to find closure after these traumatic events.
