    Police are trying to locate a car and the driver who hit and seriously injured an off-duty firefighter in Bridgeport last month.

    According to police, the firefighter was walking across Stratford Avenue on June 28 when he was struck by the car. The driver turned onto East Main Street, stopped briefly, then sped off, police said.

    The victim, who has only been identified by police as a 46-year-old Bridgeport firefighter, was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

    The car is a dark gray Toyota Corolla, possibly from the 2015 model year, according to police. The car would have heavy front-end damage and would be missing the driver's side rear-view mirror.

    Anyone who may have information on the crash or the location of the car or driver is asked to call Bridgeport Police Department's Traffic Division at (203) 576-7640.
