Bridgeport – Firefighter Injured After Hit-And-Run
A city crewman was injured in Bridgeport last Friday evening.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Stratford Avenue and East Main Street (Route 127). A 46-year-old Bridgeport firefighter was off-duty and crossing Stratford Avenue when he was hit by what witnesses said was a Toyota Corolla making a turn towards East Main Street. Instead of the stopping, the driver of the car fled the scene, traveling north on East Main. The firefighter sustained serious injuries and was immediately transported by emergency crews to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment. Bridgeport Police officials continue to investigate the incident and are asking anyone who may have information about the suspect to contact them as soon as possible.
Pedestrians injured by negligence, DUI or reckless behavior can file for damages/compensation under appropriate circumstances. Instances of hit-and-run can only aggravate cases against suspects. Consulting a legal expert can be beneficial in these situations.
