Danbury – Pedestrian Injured By Truck
A man was hit by a passing pickup truck in Danbury last Friday afternoon.
A few minutes before 5:00 p.m., reports came in of an accident at the intersection of Wildman and Chestnut Streets. Emergency crews were dispatched to the area and discovered 56-year-old Kevin Woulfe of Danbury injured after a pickup truck hit him. According to officials, Woulfe was walking north on Wildman Street when a 2010 Ford F-150, driven by 29-year-old Mauricio Brito-Santos of Danbury, attempted to make a turn at the intersection, hitting Woulfe in the process. The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was taken to Danbury Hospital for treatment. Authorities have yet to determine the cause of the incident and are still investigating it. They are also asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
Authorities handling this case have yet to discover any evidence suggesting any ill-intent on the part of any involved party. That said, investigators will continue to study the case until accountability has been accurately established. Achieving this goal will not only bring culprits to justice but also allow injured parties to seek damages in incidents where negligence, DUI or reckless behavior have been discovered.
