Westport – Fatal Pedestrian Incident
A local man was killed in an intersection accident in Westport yesterday afternoon.
25-year-old Peter Greenberg of Westport was walking near the intersection of North Sasco Commons and Bulkley Avenue North when he was struck by a vehicle. He sustained critical injuries and was immediately transported to Norwalk Hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The still-unidentified driver of the vehicle immediately stopped and has since cooperated with officials. The roadway was closed for several hours while investigators collected evidence. The crash site has since been cleared. Authorities are encouraging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have any relevant info to contact them as soon as possible.
Despite best efforts by officials and local communities, fatal pedestrian incidents still occur. Identifying the causes of these accidents is as important as ever — culprits must be brought to justice. While in many cases, these are just accidents, there have also been incidents caused by reckless or negligent behavior. If these factors are discovered, victims (or their next of kin) should be informed of their legal options and granted additional opportunities to find closure.
