A Norwalk man had his right leg broken Sunday night, October 7, by a car that struck him as he and a friend crossed Union Avenue at Main Street.
The car continued down Union Avenue without stopping, leaving behind the driver's side mirror.
Police were called to the , at 11:38 p.m. on a report of a pedestrian struck by a car. They found the 44-year-old victim lying on a sidewalk with a broken leg and scratches on his hip and wrist.
The man said he and his friend were walking southbound on Main Street approaching Union Avenue, and noticed a car approaching them northbound. He said the car didn't indicate it intended to turn, so they stepped off the curb and began crossing Union Avenue.
He said the oncoming car then turned right onto Union Avenue and made such a wide turn it hit him, even though he was less than halfway across the intersection.
As the car struck him, the driver's side mirror tore off. The vehicle — possibly a red Honda Civic with a spoiler — continued eastbound on Union Avenue without stopping.
Police spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Cotto said investigators needed to determine if surveillance cameras at the nearby Cumberland Farms store captured the incident.
