Stamford – Fatal Pedestrian Incident
A pedestrian was killed while crossing a busy intersection in Stamford last Wednesday.
At around 9:16 p.m., a 61-year-old pedestrian was attempting to cross Washington Boulevard when he/she was struck by a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta traveling on Tresser Boulevard. The victim incurred critical injuries in the hit and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the vehicle, a 23-year-old motorist from Stamford, immediately stopped and has cooperated with authorities in the subsequent investigation. Officials have yet to identify anyone pending notification of the victim’s next of kin. Updates will be provided once authorities release more info.
Following protocol, authorities would withhold the identities of crash victims until after their families have been informed. Identifying the causes of these fatal incidents will always be the primary goal of investigators as this is the only way for families of victims to find closure. People involved in similar situations are advised to contact legal experts so that their situations can be properly assessed and action plans carefully developed.
