News reports state when the officer left his cruiser to assist the driver he was hit by a passing car. The unidentified officer has been hospitalized, reports said. This situation again drives home the fact: many Connecticut drivers still aren’t heeding the state’s Slow Down, Move Over law, says AAA Northeast.
