Mother of hit-and-run victim pleads for driver to turn himself into authorities
A Bridgeport mother whose son was critically injured a hit-and-run in May is pleading for the driver to turn himself in to police.
"He was hit by a speeding car and he was thrown along the sidewalk and they just kept going," Jean Brown told News 12.
Brown said her son arrived home on Friday after spending a month in the hospital and then rehabilitation. She says he was struck by a car on Beechmont Avenue around 7 p.m. on May 4. The accident left him with a broken pelvis and other bones and required him to get a hip replacement.
Brown is hoping the hit-and-run driver will "do the right thing".
"You almost killed my son," she said. "You hit him and it's by the grace of God that he's able to even move after 30 days in the rehab. He's just gaining his strength to come out, so if it's you who hit my son, I'm just asking you to come forth and let justice be served."
Police ask anyone who can help them solve the case to call (203) 576-TIPS.
