Bridgeport offers $1.5K for for info on hit-and-run involving 2-year-old

Wednesday May 22, 2013

The city of Bridgeport has put up $1,500 as a reward for information if it leads to the arrest of the hit-and-run driver who struck a 2-year-old boy in April.

Four weeks into the search for this man or woman, police have yet to come up with any substantial clues or compelling eyewitness testimony. This seems to have prompted them to fear that the trail will soon grow cold.

The car accident occurred around 9 p.m. on April 30. The little boy had just left his mother’s car. He survived the incident, but he is partially paralyzed and suffered severe brain injuries. Last week, he awoke from a medically induced coma. He is currently hospitalized at Yale-New Haven Hospital and will be transferred to a Westchester, New York, medical facility when his rehabilitation is further along.

To coincide with the award, Bridgeport police are planning a new push to get people to come forward with any information. They plan to distribute flyers and are going to try to arrange for a presence near the site of the accident, in the 600 block of Capitol Avenue, in the hopes that something about the accident can be learned.

It was wrong of whomever struck this boy to leave the scene. In addition to being terribly unfair to a little child, it was also legally, ethically and morally irresponsible.

We know that fear and anxiety are natural emotions after a car accident, but if you can, it is important to remember that help is available after the fact, if you want it. Running away is never a good idea.
