Car hits man, store in Norwalk

A runaway car hit a man in Norwalk this morning, sending him to the hospital.

The victim was making repairs to the County Mall on Westport Avenue, which was damaged a few weeks ago by another runaway vehicle.

One witness says the driver looked like he was going to make a turn, but never stopped, knocking the worker to the ground.

The driver told several witnesses that he thought he hit the brake and he wants to have the car checked for problems.
