Pedestrian Hospitalized After Hamden Hit-And-Run

A 28-year-old Hamden pedestrian was hospitalized in a hit-and-run in Hamden late morning on Monday and police are seeking the public's help in locating a car possibly connected.

A driver traversed the double yellow line into the oncoming lane on State Street in Hamden to pass several cars on the southbound side and struck a pedestrian crossing the road, police said. The driver didn't stop and fled in the southbound direction.

Police responded to the intersection of the road with Farm Road at 11:58 a.m. on Monday. Investigators are looking for a gray Volkswagon Passat Wagon made between 2001 and 2005 and reports indicated a woman was driving. Police have released a surveillance photo of the car they suspect the person was driving.

"It should have damage to the windshield. In addition, the vehicle is missing the grill insert on the driver's side fog light," police said in a news release.
