Four hospitalized after potential hit-and-run on Berlin Turnpike


BERLIN — Police say two adults and two children were taken to Hartford Hospital Tuesday night after their car was struck on the Berlin Turnpike by an unidentified vehicle, causing it to lose control and roll over several times.

The accident occurred about 10:40 p.m. near the Meriden town line in the northbound lanes, according to police. Police said there might be evidence that an unidentified vehicle hit the rear of the Toyota sedan. The other car did not stop and continued northbound on the turnpike, police said.

The four people sustained non-life threatening injuries, police say.
