Danbury man killed in hit & run accident while crossing Route 7 in New Milford

A Danbury man has been killed in a hit and run accident in New Milford last night.  Police responded to Route 7 shortly after 5pm on a report of a pedestrian struck in the southbound lane by a vehicle as he crossed Danbury Road.  The vehicle that hit 61-year old Galo Rafael Guaman-Sarmiento fled the scene and is believed to be a black sedan with front driver's side damage.  Police say it was possibly a Ford Fusion.  Water Witch Hose Fire officials say multiple vehicles stopped to help. Despite immediate care from bystanders, responders and EMS, the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.  A detour was set up as Route 7 was shut down in both directions for the investigation.  Sherman Fire Department responded with their portable light tower. Units cleared at 7pm with the Police taking over the revised traffic patterns while they processed the scene.  Anyone with information about the crash or the evading vehicle is asked to contact New Milford Detective Nicholas Smith at 860-355-3133.
