Middletown – Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Incident
Authorities are currently looking for a motorcycle rider who hit a pedestrian in Middletown last Thursday.
At approximately 4:30 p.m., a 50-year-old man was attempting to cross Newfield Street, near its intersection with Westfield Street, when he was hit by a dirt bike traveling south on the same road. The pedestrian sustained serious injuries in the hit, including a fractured leg. Instead of stopping, the rider of the motorcycle immediately fled the area, going through a red light in the process. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and looking for the hit-and-run suspect. Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact Middletown Police.
In any case or situation, instances of hit-and-run will only worsen cases against suspects/culprits.
