WESTBROOK, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police are investigating a deadly hit-and-run in Westbrook on Christmas Eve.

Police say they received a call about an injured man lying near 283 Spencer Plains Road at approximately 4:50 p.m Tuesday.

Upon arrival officials found 36-year-old John Ingalls of Ivoryton suffering from life-threatening injuries. He was transported to Yale New Haven Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on December 28.

According to police, Ingalls was thrown from his bike after a car struck him from behind for an unknown reason. The vehicle then fled the scene.

State Police and Major Crimes detectives say they have developed strong leads for the case with the help of media, social media and concerned citizens. A person of interest has been developed.

An arrest warrant will likely be applied in the near future, but police will not identify the person of interest while the investigation is on-going.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Troop F at (860) 399-2100.
