UPDATE: Driver who hit child in Cos Cob parking lot did not see anyone.

UPDATE, Thursday, May 20: In reference to the motor vehicle-pedestrian incident on May 18, 2021 at 75 Post Rd in Cos Cob, Greenwich Police Captain Mark Zuccerella said the collision occurred in a private parking lot. 

The address at 75 Post Rd is associated with a Toyota car dealership.

Zuccerella said a vehicle was exiting a building and came into contact with the child who was in the parking lot. The car was traveling at a slow speed and the driver did not see anyone. 

“It is unknown at this time what the child saw or was doing,” Zuccerella said, adding that the child was not tall enough for the driver to see him. “The Operator felt a bump and stopped. The child fell backwards and struck his head on the pavement.”

Zuccerella said officers on scene found the child to be crying but displayed no obvious injuries other than a small laceration to the back of his head. 

The child was transported to Stamford Hospital. 

“We do not have the final injuries for the child at this time, but from what we can ascertain they appear to be minor cuts from contact with pavement,” Zuccerella added.
