Woman struck by hit-and-run driver in Meriden while walking her dogs


MERIDEN — A female pedestrian was hit by a car on Yale Avenue Thursday evening, causing her to be sent to the hospital for evaluation.

Al Torizzo, of the Meriden Fire Department, said the woman was walking her dogs at about 6:30 p.m. in the vicinity of 560 Yale Ave. when she was struck by the mirror of a passing vehicle. The driver did not stop, he said.

Firefighters assisted at the scene until the woman was taken to MidState Medical Center by Hunter’s Ambulance, Torizzo said. They also walked her dogs and transported them to a nearby relative’s house in order to get them out of the cold, he said.
