NORWICH – The Norwich Police Department is asking for the public’s help in solving a hit and run collision that caused a car to careen off the road and crash into a local doctor’s office.
The accident occurred at around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday when the driver, Anne Ward of Manley Road, Norwich, slowed her Ford Escort Wagon to make a right turn into the Podiatric Medicine & Surgery Office at 85 South Broad.
Just behind her and heading north on the road, an unidentified dark green or blue pick-up truck, possibly an SUV, rear-ended Ward’s vehicle, causing her to lose control and slide across the business’s lawn, smashing into the front porch and brick foundation.
“All I could think was ‘What just happened? What hit me?’” said Ward. “A man following behind me pulled over after the other car sped away and made sure I was OK. I never got his name, but thank you whoever you were.”
