Two New Haven pedestrians were struck Tuesday afternoon when a car drove into a crowd on Kensington Street and Chapel Street. A New Haven hit-and-run accident occurs when either another vehicle, bicyclist, or pedestrian is hit and the other driver flees the scene. If you are a pedestrian in a hit-and-run accident, you should do the following:
- Seek medical attention. Anytime you or a loved suffer a New Haven personal injury, your primary care provider or emergency department physician should treat you immediately. You want to make sure any injuries from the accident are documented. Sometimes, it can take several days or weeks for injuries to present. Make sure you are visiting your doctor.
- Call the police. Contact the police department in the town the accident occurred and give them as much information as you can on the driver, car make, car model, or any other distinguishing feature. The police will want to know this information so they can search for this driver/vehicle.
