(Bridgeport, CT – Sept. 11, 2013) – A city woman was charged with evading responsibility after a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian.

Officer Stacey Lyons responded to the intersection of Hawthorne Street and Glenwood Avenue on a report of a pedestrian struck Tuesday evening.

Lyons spoke to an independent witness and received a possible license plate number of the vehicle. The officer also reviewed security footage from a nearby condominium complex that showed the pedestrian being struck.

Lyons went the house where the car was registered and spoke to the owner.

Pauline Daniel, 60, stated that she had been driving on Hawthorn and Glenwood earlier but stated she didn’t strike a pedestrian. Lyons observed two hand imprints on the hood of the car.

Daniel was given a misdemeanor summons for evading responsibility and failure to grant the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The injuries to the pedestrian did not appear to be serious.
