The driver of a moped was rushed to the hospital after being struck by a car in Stratford Friday night.
Canaan Road in Stratford was shut down while police investigated the accident. Police said the accident happened around 8 p.m. and the driver of the moped, who was not identified, was taken to Bridgeport with serious injuries. Police said Saturday that the driver was listed in critical condition.
“We’re on Canaan road which is a cut through from Broadbridge Avenue to Success Avenue,” said Stratford Police Lt. David Gugliotti. “We do not have a lot of problems here at all, so right now we are just in the process of trying to figure out what happened.”
Investigators said the moped was riding south on Mary Avenue and was crossing Canaan Road to continue on Mary Avenue. The car was traveling west on Canaan Road and collided with the moped, police said.
The driver of the car did remain on scene and is cooperating with investigators, police said. Police have not determined who was at fault.
Police said mopeds are pretty popular in the area and they will look into whether the victim was following all the rules regarding their use.
