STAMFORD, Conn. — A 31-year-old Stamford man is accused of not stopping after his vehicle hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Main Street on Tuesday, Sgt. Robert Shawinsky said.
The victim told police he didn’t need help in getting medical assistance and would follow up later with injury information, Shawinsky said.
The driver, identified as Brendan Reeves, hit his breaks but was unable to stop his vehicle on the wet roadway, Shawinsky said. Shawinsky said witnesses told police the pedestrian rolled onto the hood of the vehicle after being hit, and Reeves drove away.
Witnesses described the driver and gave police his plate number, and an officer recognized Reeves from the description and arrested him at RBS, his place of employment, Shawinsky said.
Reeves was charged with failure to carry an operator’s license and evading responsibility, police said. He posted a $2,500 bond and was released.
