8-year-old girl hospitalized after hit and run crash at same intersection where 64-year-old man was killed a few months ago

Excerpt from the New Haven Register, 3/18/14:

"Police are searching for a white van that hit an 8-year-old city girl at Ferry and Pine streets Tuesday morning, police spokesman Officer David Hartman said."

"The girl is in stable condition at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where she was taken following the hit-and-run, Hartman said in a press release."

"The van, which has double rear doors with windows, is believed to have damage to the front passenger side near or involving the headlight, the release said.  Hartman said officers were called to the scene at about 7:30 a.m. The girl was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the hospital."

As we previously reported, a 64-year-old man, John Mucha, was killed in the same place a few months ago.
