NEWINGTON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) - Newington police have a person in custody, suspected of plowing down three pedestrians from the same family on Christian Lane in Newington around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday.

The suspect’s name hasn’t been released.

WFSB-TV reports that a woman, her pregnant daughter and a young boy believed to be the woman’s grandson were crossing the street when they were hit by a truck. The driver then continued on without stopping.

A Good Samaritan eventually tracked down the truck driver, stopped the suspect and called police.

Two of the injures were taken to St. Francis Hospital, the third to Hartford Hospital. Their current conditions are not known.
