Connecticut Post (Sunday) - - News - By Tara O’Neill

BRIDGEPORT — De­tails re­gard­ing a hit- an­drun that killed a pedes­trian Fri­day morn­ing were scarce Satur­day. Of­fi­cials could not be reached to con­firm the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the vic­tim or the per­son ar­rested.

The pedes­trian was pro­nounced dead at Bridgeport Hos­pi­tal af­ter be­ing hit by a ve­hi­cle that fled at the in­ter­sec­tion of Bos­ton and Kent av­enues around 11 a. m. Fri­day, ac­cord­ing to po­lice, who said a sus­pect was quickly ap­pre­hended, and would face charges.

The ar­rest log at the Bridgeport Po­lice Depart- ment avail­able Satur­day morn­ing in­di­cated that three peo­ple were charged with mo­tor ve­hi­cle- re­lated vi­o­la­tions on Fri­day.

One of those, ac­cord­ing to the ar­rest log, was 24year- old Robert Howard Dominguez, of Wal­nut Tree Hill Road in Shel­ton, who was charged with op­er­at­ing an un­reg­is­tered mo­tor ve­hi­cle and evad­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity af­ter a crash that re­sulted in death.

It could not be im­me­di­ately confirmed, though, the in­ci­dent that led to charges against Dominguez was the same one in which the pedes­trian was killed at Bos­ton and Kent av­enues.
