    A Cumberland Farms employee in Shelton was critically injured while trying to stop thieves from stealing two signs featuring David Hasselhoff, like this sign from an Ansonia Cumberland Farms.

    Shelton police have identified three passengers in a car that struck a Cumberland Farms employee in August while attempting to steal David Hasselhoff signs from outside the convenience store.

    According to police, three people, including a 19-year-old came forward and admitted to being in the car at the time of the incident.

    It happened Aug. 20 at the Cumberland Farms at 819 River Road. Police said 36-year-old Jason Crowley (pictured), a convenience store employee, was struck while trying to stop the thefts.

    Hasselhoff responded by expressing his sympathies on Twitter.

    Police have not released the names of the passengers and have not made any arrests yet, but said the 19-year-old admitted to driving the car.

    Crowley was released from the hospital last week.

    The case is still under investigation.
