Woman calls for safety improvements at Bridgeport intersection following serious incidents

A Westport woman is calling for safety improvements at the intersection where her brother was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Bridgeport.
Krissy Saccone, 39, of Westport, says her brother Daniel was at Fairfield Avenue and Brewster Street when he was hit two years ago.
Video obtained by News 12 shows Daniel being struck by a car, flying up onto the car's hood and hitting the street.
"That was an extremely hard hit. He landed in sort of a perfect way and the only thing we can say is it was a miracle. There was an angel watching over him," says Krissy.
The driver has never been identified.
Krissy is advocating for several safety measures, including flashing lights and security cameras to be installed.
She says these changes would help prevent pedestrians from being hit or killed.
"The next victim might not be as lucky as Daniel was" says Krissy.
Daniel is now a student at UConn studying to be an engineer.
Two weeks ago, a similar accident occurred at the intersection when a four-year-old boy was critically injured when he was hit by a car while crossing the street with his mom and sister.
City Councilman Scott Burns tells News 12 that city officials will soon make an announcement about what he calls the long-awaited structural improvements of the intersection.
