Story from Tuesday

On Tuesday morning, around 1:15, Shelton Police received a 9-1-1 call stating that a male in the parking lot of Cumberland Farms at 819 River Road, was struck by a motor vehicle. Police and EMS responded to the scene and located the 36-year-old male victim. The victim, who is an employee at Cumberland Farms, was taken to Bridgeport Hospital and is listed in critical condition.

The initial investigation revealed that a black SUV pulled into the lot of Cumberland Farms. The victim later observed a white male get out of the vehicle and cut two David Hasselhoff advertisement signs off of a light pole.

The male then put the signs in the back of the vehicle. The victim approached the vehicle in an attempt to get the signs back. The vehicle then sped away and the victim was dragged and then he spun around and flipped backwards landing on his head. The vehicle headed on River Road towards Stratford.
