WESTON - A broad-winged hawk got a second chance at life Saturday thanks to a teenager from Weston.

The hawk was hit by a car two weeks ago and suffered a concussion. Wildlife rehabilitator Christine Peyreigne helped nurse the bird back to health.

Peyreigne has been nursing wildlife animals back to health out of her Weston home for the last five years. She says it's very common to see broad-winged hawks get hit by cars because people often throw their food scraps into the streets.

The broad-winged hawk is one of Connecticut's most endangered species.
