Pedestrian Killed in Fair Haven

Excerpt from the New Haven Independent:

"a collision left a 64-year-old man dead in Fair Haven. The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Ferry and Pine streets. Here’s what happened, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman:

“Two employees of a local tire business were returning from a service call. They were driving in their company pick-up truck, heading south on Ferry Street, when the pedestrian, 64-year-old John Mucha, of New Haven, entered the roadway. The truck struck Mucha as he crossed the street. Mr. Mucha was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced deceased

“The NHPD Crash Investigation Unit responded and commenced with their investigation. The driver and passenger of the truck remained at the scene and cooperated fully with investigators. The driver has not been charged in the accident. The investigation is expected to take some time and a final report and conclusion isn’t expected for several months.”
