Middlebury Police Log: Police investigate hit and run
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police investigated a hit-and-run accident at around 9:18 p.m. on Friday, May 20, on Seymour Street, in which a man was struck in the back and sustained minor injuries.
Police said the 20-year-old was crossing Seymour Street from the Congregational Church of Middlebury toward the Middlebury Post Office and was struck in the back by a vehicle traveling on Seymour Street toward Main Street.
