Shortly after 2am a Bridgeport Police Officer reported that a car just flew by him at a high rate of speed. Seconds later a second officer reported that the same car literally flew by him, hitting the jersey barrier and going 20 feet into the air and landing on the railroad tracks very close to railroad workers just a couple of feet away. The speeding car hit a number of cars along Fairfield Avenue as well as hitting a car carrying children, they were rushed to nearby hospitals. As you can see the driver of the flying car was alert at the scene. He was transported to a local hospital. Bridgeport Police speculated that the car was being pursued possibly from Fairfield but we were monitoring all police traffic at the time and no pursuits were happening at the time. Train traffic was halted until after 4am as well as traffic on Fairfield Avenue near Railroad Avenue and Exit 25 of I-95. The car was removed just before 4am.
