Police continue search for hit-and-run driver in Bridgeport

Posted: Updated:

A week after a little boy was seriously injured in a hit-and-run in Bridgeport, police were back in the neighborhood trying to track down new leads.

Stopping cars in the middle of Capitol Avenue, officers handed out flyers while others went door-to-door doing the same.

Police said they are hoping someone will have some information on the hit-and-run driver that put the 2-year-old boy in the hospital.

Knowing that a little boy is lying in a hospital bed with life-changing injuries has left police and neighbors angry over the thought the driver is still out there.

Police said they spent Tuesday night, one week after the incident, recanvassing the road where it happened. Last Tuesday police said Erika Parmalee had just parked her car, was holding her son Kory's hand when she reached back into her vehicle.

That's when police said the car hit the child and sped off without stopping.

A week later, police said they still don't know who the driver is or even what kind of car they were in.

"It's frustrating, but if we catch up to somebody who has information, they will give it to us," said Bridgeport Police Chief Joseph Gaudette.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police.
