Original Article:

Two pedestrians are in critical condition following an accident involving a motor vehicle and four pedestrians on Bridgeport Avenue near Cowles Street.

Milford Police are investigating the incident, in which four pedestrians were walking along the shoulder of the roadway prior to the accident.

The pedestrians and vehicle were all traveling Eastbound in the same direction. Two of the pedestrians are listed in critical condition, one pedestrian received minor injuries, and the other was not injured. Bridgeport Avenue was closed for a period of time during the investigation but is now open in both directions.  

Police are recommending that pedestrians avoid walking along roadways due to the inclement weather conditions.  If necessary, pedestrians should walk against the direction of traffic so they can see oncoming traffic and stay close to the edge of the roadway.

The Milford Police Traffic Division is continuing with the investigation and is asking anyone with information regarding the accident to contact (203) 783-4749 or email at dsharoh@ci.milford.ct.us

It was a city plow, and not just some random car/truck.

If it was a plow, Brpt Ave is a state Rd than it was a state plow

Didn't know. Never been there, they're in my extended family. We got an email from a family member up there who has talked to the daughters who were not injured, but they said it was a plow that hit them from behind. Injuring the parents.

Sorry Matt, hoping for the best! I will keep them in my prayers.

There's a lot of little boys in big trucks, jeeps and 4X4s trying to act like real men driving around irresponsibly. Having the bucks to pay for a powerful vehicle does not make one a real truck driver, plow operator or construction worker, some should play out their fantasies and deal with their inadequacy when the crisis is over. People’s lives are at stake.
