Young software developer mowed down, all 4 limbs broken, at corner of Bradley & Orange in New Haven's East Rock section

A woman hit a pedestrian with her car Monday night at Orange and Bradley streets 7:21 p.m. Monday and then drove away—leaving him with four broken limbs.

 The woman drove away from the scene of the crash but called 911, telling the operator what she had done and where she was. She said she drank two “Natty Ice” malt beverages before she hit the pedestrian, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman. Investigators found an empty can of the beer on the floor of her car. She was arrested and charged with “DUI, reckless driving, evading responsibility and assault in the second degree with a motor vehicle,” according to Hartman. The woman’s blood alcohol content was measured at .1707, more than twice the legal limit.

 The victim, a 29-year-old software application developer, remains in critical condition. He suffered severe internal injuries and breaks to all four limbs.
