NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven police are investigating a hit-and-run that left a pedestrian with serious injuries Tuesday night.

Police say the crash took place on Sherman Avenue between Elm Street and Whalley Avenue just before 9 p.m.

According to police, a nearby 40-year-old New Haven woman heard the impact of the person being hit by the car and went to the injured pedestrian to render aid. The victim, a 37-year-old New Haven man, had suffered serious injuries and was lying in the road.

After feeling no pulse on the unresponsive victim, police say that the woman performed CPR before the New Haven Fire Department and American Medical Response personnel arrived and took over.

An ambulance then took the pedestrian to Yale New Haven Hospital where he remains in critical but stable condition. His identity has not yet been released.

The NHPD Accident Reconstruction Team responded to the scene. Investigators believe the victim had exited a parked car near his home on Sherman Avenue before the accident took place. As he began to cross the street in the middle of the block, a Honda sedan traveling northbound on Sherman Avenue struck him near the double yellow lines.

The Honda then continued on Sherman Avenue and turned left on Whalley Avenue toward Winthrop Avenue.

Police say that the vehicle involved is a silver Honda Accord that is older, four-door, early to mid-2000’s year car. It’s also missing its driver side mirror and may have damage to its front driver side area.

The crash remains under investigation at this time. Anyone with information or who knows the whereabouts of the Honda Accord and the driver is urged to contact the New Haven Police Department at 203-946-6316.
