Detectives on Monday sought public help to find a hit-and-run motorist responsible for a collision that badly injured a motorcyclist in Norwalk.
The 29-year-old victim suffered “severe” injuries to his left leg, as well as internal injuries, about 10:25 p.m. Saturday at Norwalk Boulevard and Lindale Avenue, the sheriff’s department reported.
The motorist, described only as a man, was driving a mid-1980s Ford Mustang, dark green or charcoal gray in color.
The driver was making a right turn from a stop sign, from eastbound Lindale Avenue to southbound Norwalk Boulevard, when he hit the motorcyclist, according to sheriff’s investigators.
“The suspect did a ‘burnout’ as he made the turn, lost control of his vehicle, went into oncoming traffic, and struck the victim, who was riding his motorcycle northbound on Norwalk Boulevard,” the sheriffs statement said.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the Norwalk Station’s traffic office, (562) 863-8711; or Crime Stoppers, (800) 222-TIPS.
