WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)–The family of a former Connecticut lawmaker involved in a car crash says he has been moved out of intensive care and is in fair condition.

68-year-old Selim Noujaim  was putting up campaign signs for his nephew — Waterbury Board of Aldermen candidate George Noujaim– when he was hit by a car on October 30.

Police said the driver stopped and was cooperating with the investigation. No arrests have been made.

Noujam remains in St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury.

“We are so very pleased with his progress; he is on the right track and we are so proud of his determination and strength,” said Rebecca Noujam on behalf of the family. “We are still in need of continued prayers and we are grateful, as there will be a long recovery process ahead.”

Noujaim served as a Republican in the state House of Representatives for seven terms. He retired last year after deciding not to seek re-election. Noujaim is the current executive vice president of Noujaim Tool Co. in Waterbury.
