Police have released an image of a car connected to the hit-and-run of a Bridgeport firefighter.

Erique McCalla, 46, was struck and hit by a car on June 28 after leaving a restaurant on Stratford Avenue.

Police say McCalla was off duty at the time of the incident and that the car fled the scene.

McCalla remains in ICU at Bridgeport Hospital.

"My son is still struggling, he's progressing, but he's still struggling," says Linda Fernandez Johnson, McCalla's mother. "He did not deserve this, and he's really fighting hard to come back."
