2 Women Struck By Hit & Run Driver In Sutton

SUTTON (CBS) – A comment about a boyfriend hugging someone is blamed for a woman running two others over, according to witnesses.

Officers descended on the small community known as "New Village" in the village of Manchaug in Sutton. At around 1:15 P.M. police received 911 calls that a car had hit someone. Once they arrived, police said a woman had run over two other women. The driver had then grabbed bags from her car and ran.
