Police Investigating Death of Pedestrian in Berlin Release Photos of Pickup

Police in Berlin are trying to identify the driver who struck and killed a woman as she was walking alongside New Britain Road last week and they have released photos of the pickup they believe was involved.

Authorities said 58-year-old Janine Wiktor was struck and killed around 10:40pm Wednesday, Oct. 16 and the driver didn’t stop.

Berlin police said they received a call in the thick of the storm last week about debris on the road, but determined that Wiktor had been struck and killed by a car while she was walking on the side of the road, pushing a shopping cart.

NBC Connecticut spoke off camera with Wiktor’s brother, who hopes police can find whoever did this, so his family can have some closure.

On Monday, police released photos of a pickup and said it went through the parking lot of McDonald’s at 185 New Britain Road.

They said damage on the vehicle would most likely be to the passenger side front end.
