Stamford Police Seek Driver In Hit-And-Run That Killed 2

STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- Police have identified the motorist suspected of fleeing the scene as two people lay dying.

Police are offering a $500 reward for help finding 32-year-old Felicia Burl, who is suspected of being at the wheel of a 2002 Nissan Altima that ran a red light on the Greenwich-Stamford line and slammed into a station wagon Nov. 7.

Judith Andriulli, a passenger in the station wagon driven by her husband, Anthony, died hours after being cut from the car by firefighters. She was 70.

Anthony Andriulli sustained numerous broken bones and was treated at Stamford Hospital.

"This poor man is injured significantly, and he basically lost his soul mate," police Sgt. Andrew Gallagher told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau last week.

Nixon Henry, of Stamford, also was killed. The 50-year-old Henry was in the passenger seat of his car and was ejected through the windshield.

Police believe Burl freed herself from the wreckage and fled on foot.

The Andriullis had just gone out for dinner and were driving back to Greenwich at the time of the crash, Schneidau reported. Gallagher said the Nissan was traveling at an excessive speed and the driver was accelerating as she ran the red light.
