HADDAM, Conn. (WTNH) — Police have identified a person of interest in connection to a bike accident that happened Thursday.

A vehicle has also been recovered, according to police.

A 14 year-old girl was critically injured after being struck. Police say the girl was riding her bike on Route 81, Killingworth road when she was struck from behind. The incident occurred just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday night.

Central District Major Crime Squad Detectives are continuing to follow up on leads pertaining to this incident. The investigation is ongoing.

“It’s always dark in some areas because there’s not a lot of lighting, so yeah, it’s a pretty big worry,” said Joseph Tharpe.

“With a bike and a child, you would hope they would have stopped,” TFC Muniz said.
