Pregnant woman hit by car on Liberty in Meriden


MERIDEN — A pregnant woman was struck by a car as she crossed the intersection of Broad and Liberty streets Friday afternoon, according police and witnesses.

Sgt. Jeff Herget said police responded to a report that a woman had been hit by a motor vehicle at about 4 p.m.

A witness said the victim “flipped up in the air” as she crossed Liberty Street after the vehicle, which was turning left on to Liberty from Broad, “nipped her on the side.”

Meriden residents Nick Salvetti and Jennifer Blaze said they were traveling on Broad when they saw the woman lying in the road. They stopped so Blaze, a certified nurse’s assistant, could help her, but by the time they reached her, she was being attended to by another bystander.

Blaze said the woman told them she was six months pregnant.
