Woman Dies After Hit-And-Run in Hartford

Police say a woman who was found in the middle of a road in Hartford on Saturday morning was hit by a car.

Officers responded to 485 Wethersfield Avenue around 4:15 a.m. after getting a report of a pedestrian hit by a vehicle. When they arrived, police say they found an unresponsive 31-year-old woman who had suffered apparent life-threatening injuries. She was pronounced dead at the scene around 4:25 a.m., according to police.

When officers searched for witnesses and an evading vehicle with substantial front-end damage in the area, police say they could not find any.

A surveillance camera from a local business captured video footage of the incident. Detectives watched the video and say it shows the woman laying on the southbound lane of Wethersfield Avenue before getting hit by a silver vehicle traveling south on the road.

Police believe the vehicle involved in the incident is a 2003-2006 silver Infiniti G-35. Officers say damage to the vehicle should be concentrated on the passenger side, on the lower portion of the front bumper assembly.

Officers have not released the identity of the woman who died.
