GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich police were looking for a Pontiac G6 in connection with a hit-and-run car accident in a Byram parking lot early Saturday in which a 21-year-old woman was dragged to her death, police said. 

The car is from 2005 to 2010 and is either burgundy or dark red in color, police said. 

"We continue to investigate a fatal hit and run motor vehicle pedestrian accident that occurred Saturday morning in the Byram section of town located along the N.Y. border and adjacent to I-95," the Greenwich Police Department said on its website page."Investigation has determined the evading vehicle is likely a Pontiac G6 Model Year 2005-2010 either burgundy or dark red in color. The vehicle has tinted windows and is believed to be bearing front and rear Connecticut license plates."

The woman, a college student from Middlebury, was hit as she retrieved items from a car parked in the William Street municipal parking lot in Byram at about 2 a.m. Dec. 27, police said. She was dragged through the lot, down William Street onto Mill Street, police said. She was dragged more than three blocks down Mill Street before the car stopped near the former Hasco Electric Co., police said. 

The driver fled the scene, police said. The woman was transported to the Stamford Hospital Emergency Room. Her identity has not been released by police.

The vehicle involved was low to the ground with chrome wheels, and the front air dam may be damaged, police said.

The driver was described as male with light to medium complexion and dark short hair, wearing a long sleeve shirt and a gold chain with a cross, according to police.
Anyone with any information on the accident is asked to contact Traffic Technician Roger Drenth at 203-622-8014 or by email at tips@greenwichct.org.

The person responsible has been arrested today. If he was trying to get away with what he did, he obviously is not that bright when his car was found in the exact lot the incident took place.

They caught the guy today.

Something seems amiss. How can they know the guy has a gold cross around his neck and not provide a better description?

The world is filled with horrible people. I hope he turns himself in. And is sorry for the crime he commited

Actually I agree Port Chester is filled with dirt bags.

For the record....There's dirtbags everywhere! Let's hope for a quick arrest...

Would not be a bit surprised that it was a dirt bag from Port Chester

The police are stating the car has CT plates, if that is correct then they are not from PC or the car would have NY plates. Saying nasty remarks about people from PC, makes you sound ignorant. This person could be from anywhere. In this case, the police believe it to be CT.

Let's just pray the person responsible, scared or not, comes forward. They are making this horrific tragedy even worse. My sympathies go out to the family who lost their precious loved one.

He is trolling, he is obsessed with his ex from port chester.

Your comments describing Port Chester residents as "Dirt Bags" shows what a MORON you must be. This is a tragic event and we pray whoever did this horrible act gets captured quickly with the dedicated Police Force working this case I'm sure will get a quick arrest.
