Lisbon Girl Hurt in Hit-and-Run

The Norwich Bulletin reports that a "14-year-old Moosup girl was hospitalized after a car struck her during a hit-and-run accident in Lisbon on Saturday." The unidentified girl was taken to Backus Hospital with a head injury and her condition was unavailable. "According to a police news release, the girl was walking south on the shoulder of Route 12 near the northbound ramp of Interstate 395 when she was hit. At least two people witnessed the accident, which happened at about 9:45 p.m." A dark-colored four-door sport utility vehicle struck the girl, causing her to be “thrown off the shoulder and onto the grass,” the police said. The car did not stop.
