NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven Police are investigating after a pedestrian was struck on Ella Grasso Boulevard, and later died at a local hospital on Saturday night.

The pedestrian was identified Monday as 31-year-old Anthony Little, of New Haven.

The incident occurred around 8 p.m. in the area of Ella Grasso Boulevard, near Adeline Street. Police say two vehicles struck Little. One of the driver’s remained on scene, while the other did not.

Little was transported to the hospital with injuries, and was pronounced deceased later in evening.

An investigation revealed that Little was driving on Ella Grasso Boulevard when he stopped and exited the car to retrieve a tablet, which had been left on the roof of his car and had fallen onto the roadway.

Little was then struck by two vehicles as he walked in the middle of the road.

Police later located a Connecticut license plate in the road and traced it to the second vehicle involved. Officers also located the driver, who is now cooperating with the investigation.

A portion of Ella Grasso Boulevard was closed overnight while police investigated, however it has since reopened.

No charges have been filed.
