Man dragged by SUV, injured early Sunday in Manchester
The incident took place about 2 a.m. Sunday morning on Ashland Street near the intersection with Ahmerst Street, police said. Police said the investigation is active, and they would not release the name of the victim.
Police Sgt. Craig Russo said the victim, who was taken by ambulance to Elliot Hospital, is in serious but stable condition.
Police have found the SUV in Manchester, but the driver is wanted for questioning, police said.
A neighbor said a fire engine was the first to arrive on the scene. Ashland Street resident Cheryl Peabody said she looked out her door to see a young white male sitting on the ground wiping his head. A girl was standing next to him, and at one point another girl came over, spoke to them and then departed.
Peabody said she heard no shouting before the fire engine arrived.
“My dog would bark, believe me,” she said.
Police said the SUV was a 2013 Mazda CX-5, and it dragged the pedestrian about 30 feet before he separated from the vehicle. Police said he received a serious head injury after falling to the pavement as the SUV drove off.
Anyone with information can contact Manchester police at 668-8711.
