New details are emerging about a hit-and-run that killed a teenage girl nearly two years ago in Middletown.
The complete initial investigation has just been released, and explains that four vehicles, including a semi-truck, ran over 15-year-old Cailyn Bassett and never stopped or called police.
“It's heartbreaking to know that nobody stopped," said Bassett's mother, Stephanie Phillips. "I don't understand why.”
She is fighting to know more about the crash that killed her daughter.
“Not a day goes by when I think of her,” Bassett explained.
It happened December 2012 in Middletown. The teen was walking to Bible study when she was struck in the area of Saybrook Road and Coe Avenue.
Almost two years later, no one has been arrested in connection with the crash.
The initial investigation provides new insight into what happened that night.
According to the report, a semi-truck initially hit Bassett, then three other cars ran her over and kept driving. Those vehicles involved have now been identified and so have the drivers.
“I want to know how they feel that was our child,” Phillips said.
Middletown police said it’s possible those drivers didn’t realize they had hit someone. It was dark and rainy, and Bassett was wearing dark clothing.
Phillips has her doubts.
“I know if I hit something if I travel a road every single day you know the road you know the speed bumps there are no bumps over there,” she explained.
The final investigation is not complete, and police said they can’t take action until they have concrete answers. They’re expecting results by the end of the summer.
