Pedestrian still attached to car as hit-and-run driver flees scene

A 23-year-old woman suffered a serious head injury after she was struck by a motor vehicle and dragged on the side of the vehicle as the driver attempted to flee the scene of the accident.

The woman was standing by her non-working vehicle in Connecticut when a 53-year-old driver crashed into her. The woman became lodged into the fender on the driver’s side. She yelled at the driver, and even repeatedly hit him, in order for him to slow down and let her become unattached from the vehicle.

The driver did not stop, and the woman was only freed when she eventually fell off of the car, straight onto the roadway. She sustained a head injury in the fall. The driver now faces numerous charges, including reckless endangerment.
