Hit + Run on Route 7 in Danbury Leaves One Injured, State Police Seek Suspect
Connecticut State Police are looking to identify the operator of a vehicle who was reportedly involved in a hit-and-run crash in Danbury this weekend.
According to the Connecticut State Police, the crash occurred on Saturday morning (June 20) just before noon, around 11:45 AM, on the northbound side of Route 7, just south of exit 11 in Danbury.
CSP Troop A out of Southbury says that during the incident, a black American muscle car, likely either a late-model Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger, with dark, tinted windows and a Connecticut license plate collided with a motorcycle before fleeing north on Route 7. Police also noted that the muscle car had a very loud exhaust system and there was also a German Shepard riding in the vehicle.
The operator of the motorcycle was reportedly hospitalized after sustaining injuries, but as of this writing, the operator's medical condition is unknown.
Given the nature of the crash, police say it is likely that the evading vehicle has some damage on the driver's side.
If you have seen the aforementioned black Dodge or may have any information that could help police identify the driver, it is asked that you contact Trooper First Class Cassavechia at the Connecticut State Police Troop A in Southbury at 203-267-2240.
