A 34-year-old man was killed early Sunday morning in Hartford in a hit-and-run crash.
The crash happened shortly after 5 a.m. on Preston Street.
The victim was identified as Luis A. Maldonado of Hartford, according to police.
Police said he was changing a tire when he was hit by a car. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
"It has been very sad, especially today which is Mother's Day as well, and for me even sadder because I live close to where the incident happened," said neighbor Maria Martinez.
Preston Street was shut down while police investigated the incident.
Police said the suspected vehicle is possibly a black 2000-2003 Nissan Maxima, with possible front-end damage.
The investigation is ongoing.
