1 PEDES­TRIAN SE­RI­OUS BUT STA­BLE AF­TER HIT- AND- RUN

The pedes­trian hit by a ve­hi­cle that fled the scene Fri­day evening has been iden­ti­fied as Ray­mond Ben­son, 43, of Bridge­port, po­lice said Satur­day.

Ben­son was listed in se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion at St. Vin­cent’s Hos­pi­tal, po­lice said. Two other peo­ple also were re­ported as hit, pos­si­bly by the same driver, but their con­di­tions were un­avail­able Satur­day.

Around 5: 48 p. m., a po­lice of­fi­cer called in to dis­patch for a pedes­trian hit by a ve­hi­cle at Washington Av­enue and James Street. The ve­hi­cle in­volved was said to have fled af­ter hit­ting the vic­tim and had heavy front end dam­age, re­ports in­di­cated.

At the scene around 6 p. m., po­lice of­fi­cers set up crime scene tape and di­verted traf­fic down one- way side streets like Milne Street off Washington Av­enue. At that in­ter­sec­tion, po­lice in­ves­ti­gated what ap­peared to be a piece of a bumper.

“It might be from that car ( that hit the vic­tim), or it might just be de­bris from an­other car,” said one of the of­fi­cers who checked it over with a flash­light.
