State police looking for suspect in Oxford hit-and-run

July 31, 2018

OXFORD — State police are asking anyone with information about a recent hit-and-run in Oxford that landed a bicyclist in the hospital Monday.

Troop A in Southbury and the Oxford Resident Trooper’s Office ask anyone who might have witnessed a sport utility vehicle or van hit a bicycle on Route 67 in front of the Market 32 entrance at 300 Oxford Road to come forward. It happened shortly after 4 p.m.

“The cyclist was struck by a vehicle described by witnesses as a light blue, mid-sized SUV or van operated by a white male with short blond hair,” state police said. Witnesses said the man seemed to be around 30- to 40-years-old.

The driver kept driving south on Route 67 — Oxford Road — rather than stopping, state police said. Several other drivers stopped to help the injured bicyclist. The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call Oxford Police Officer Robert Desmarais at Troop A by calling 203-267-2240.
