Another Branford Pedestrian Seriously Injured: Second Hit in Two Days in CT Shoreline Town

Excerpt from NH Register coverage:

A man was seriously injured in a crash Monday night, the second town pedestrian hurt in a major accident in just 24 hours.

The man, who is a truck driver, was struck at about 5:07 p.m. as he crossed East Industrial Road, police and fire officials said. He was carrying groceries from Stop & Shop to the lot where his truck was parked at the TA Travel Center truck stop when he was hit by a mid-size sedan, Deputy Fire Chief Ron Mullen said.

The man, who is believed to be from out of state and whose name was not released by police, was transported to Yale New-Haven Hospital with serious head and leg injuries, Mullen said.

He is the second Branford pedestrian with serious injuries taken to that hospital in two days. At about 6 p.m. Sunday, Joyce Asante, 45, was struck by a car when she was crossing Route 1. Asante, whose last known address was in New Haven, was in serious condition at Yale New-Haven Hospital Monday.
