    Police: Parent Hits Cyclist While Dropping Off Child

    Police are investigating after a parent hit a cyclist while dropping a child off at Hamden Hall Country Day School on Thursday morning.

    A Hamden police officer who responded to the scene at 1108 Whitney Ave. said the parent was turning into the school's driveway from Whitney Avenue at 8:05 a.m. and hit a cyclist who was riding on the sidewalk.

    The cyclist was thrown from the bike and sustained “very minor injuries,” according to police.

    Traffic was backed up along Whitney Avenue and the cyclist moved to the sidewalk to get out of the congestion, according to police.

    Investigators said it does not appear that the parent was speeding. The investigation is continuing.
