HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A pedestrian involved in a vehicle crash on Dixwell Avenue Thursday evening has died, according to Hamden police.
Hamden Police say, at about 6 p.m. they responded to the 1500 block of Dixwell Avenue on the report of a pedestrian struck.
Police said the vehicle struck the pedestrian when he was crossing the street.
The pedestrian suffered “serious, life-threatening injuries” and was transported to Yale New Haven Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Police identified the victim Friday as 65-year-old Calvin Washington of Hamden.
Hamden Police say the driver did stay on the scene.
Dixwell Ave. was closed for nearly seven hours for the investigation.
Mark Barros of New Haven told our reporter on scene, “It’s one too many…Too many on this stretch. You can’t cross the street between the traffic lights and the lights are at least a half-mile apart.”
