Police Announce Reward, Checkpoint In Hit-and-Run
Bridgeport Police plan a traffic checkpoint this evening as they continue to investigate a hit-and-run accident last month that seriously injured a two-year-old boy.
Police say they’ll be handing out flyers in a two-block section of Capitol Avenue, in hopes of identifying the driver who hit Corey Gorden in the 600 block of Capitol Avenue April 30 and left the scene. Police say that section of the street is used both for local traffic and as a route for commuters to other municipalities in Fairfield and New Haven counties and they’re hoping to reach someone who can provide information.
A $1,500 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
