Police Crime Scene

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A 2-year-old child has been critically injured in a hit-and-run accident in Bridgeport.

Police say the child’s mother had just taken the 2-year-old from a car on Capitol Avenue and was standing next to the child when the toddler was struck by a passing car at about 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Police spokesman William Kaempffer says the mother was helping another child from the car at the time. Police say the 2-year-old suffered serious head trauma. Neither the mother nor the second child was injured.
