Two pedestrians killed in early Saturday crash

STAMFORD — Two city residents were struck and killed while walking across Washington Boulevard early Saturday, according to police.

Officers were called to the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Main Street soon after 2 a.m. for the crash, Sgt. Jeremy Booth said in an email.

“The initial investigation revealed that the 2 pedestrians, both 25 year-old Stamford residents, were walking westbound across Washington Blvd. at Main St. The pedestrians were believed to have been in the crosswalk, the status of the pedestrian control signal is unknown at this time,” Booth said. “The vehicle, a 2022 Mercedes, was traveling (south) on Washington Blvd. and struck both pedestrians.”

The force of the impact caused both pedestrians to be thrown across the road into the northbound lanes, Booth said.

The operator of the Mercedes, an unidentified 24-year-old Greenwich man, left his vehicle and attempted to leave the scene on foot, Booth said. He was found “hiding” behind a building on Relay Place. No charges have been filed.
