Police are on the hunt for a silver-colored vehicle that hit and killed a Bridgeport man, dragging him for more than 50 feet.
The incident occurred around 5:15 a.m. Monday at 1617 East Main Street, between Spring Street and Autumn Street, said Av Harris, director of Legislative Affairs/Public Policy for the City of Bridgeport.
