November 11, 2017

PORTLAND, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut have found the vehicle they say hit and killed a 22-year-old man on a motor scooter last weekend but are still searching for the driver.

Portland Officer Paul Liseo said Friday the white Audi has been turned over to the department. Police have identified the owner, who they don’t believe was driving the car the night of the crash.

Authorities have said they believe two cars were racing each other on the Arrigoni Bridge last Saturday night when one vehicle struck the back of Daquan Moore’s motor scooter. Moore was later pronounced dead.

Police say the vehicle that hit Moore sped back to Middletown after the crash.

The investigation continues.
