Police have a pretty good clue to follow in the case of a hit-and-run this morning: The snowy imprint of a license plate!
The driver of a silver Honda Civic left their license plate number, backward of course, in the snowy rear bumper of the Saturn it hit. That should make it a bit easier for cops to track it down.
The wreck happened at 7:40 a.m. in Wednesday's snow.
A 51-year-old woman merged her Saturn onto Route 8 in Waterbury when she was hit by the Civic. After the Civic spun around, it took off.
Cops will often find physical evidence of a crash, sometimes even a license plate itself. But a snowy imprint?
"It happens all the time," says a Connecticut State Trooper.
