An 18-year-old woman is in critical condition after she was struck by at least one vehicle in New Haven on Sunday.

Fire officials said the woman was hit by a car at the corner of Elm Street and York Street.

Police said a Toyota Sequoia was heading east on Elm Street in the center lane and a Chevrolet Silverado was behind it. 

As they approached York Street, the light was green for traffic on Elm Street and several pedestrians ran across the street trying to “beat the light,” police said.

After the group, the young woman stepped into the crosswalk while the light was green for oncoming traffic, the Toyota might have “clipped” her and then she was struck by the Chevrolet, police said. 

Both drivers remained at the scene and are cooperating with investigators.

Anyone who witnessed this crash or who may have information valuable to the investigators is urged to call police via phone at 203-946-6304 or through the Department's anonymous tip-line at 866-888-TIPS (8477).
