Caught on Camera: Bridgeport police look to ID SUV that left scene of accident involving pregnant driver
Bridgeport police are asking for help tracking down a vehicle caught on camera fleeing the scene of a crash involving a pregnant driver.
Footage obtained by News 12 Connecticut from a dash-cam video shows the seconds leading up to the crash at Roosevelt and William streets.
The woman says she is grateful that she didn't end up having a miscarriage because of the accident.
The person who hit the woman appeared to drive away from the scene in a white SUV, almost striking another car in the process.
The accident happened just after 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
The pregnant driver said doctors at Bridgeport Hospital, where she was taken by ambulance, told her it was a miracle that she only suffered bumps and bruises and didn't miscarry in her fifth month of pregnancy.
"I've never been so scared in my entire life - not because of myself, not because of my car or anything, but because I am pregnant and there's a life inside of me now that I have to care for, and that was my biggest concern," said pregnant Seline.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Bridgeport police at 203-576-TIPS.
The expectant mother has created a GoFundMe to pay for the expenses of the accident.
