SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Southington police are investigating after a Waterbury man was struck by a pickup truck in Plantsville on Wednesday evening.

The Southington Police Department’s Accident Investigation Team (AIT) responded to the Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike just east of Knotter Drive around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. They say that Neim Redzepi, from Waterbury, was near the Burger King at 1850 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike, when he was struck and seriously injured by a pickup truck.

The truck’s driver, Joseph Scarmozzino from Wolcott, as well as his passanger, were uninjured according to police.

Redzepi was rushed by ambulance to St. Mary’s Hospital. Officer Busa tells News 8 that the injures are not life-threatening.

Southington police say the road was closed until 10:15 p.m., as AIT officers worked to investigate and clear the scene.

Office Jeremy Busa says the investigation is still ongoing, and that anyone with any information should contact him at (860) 621-0101, or by e-mail at jbusa@southingtonpolice.org.
