ENFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — A woman died after being hit by a car Sunday night on Interstate 91 South in Enfield, state police said.

According to troopers, a car was traveling in the center lane of three on Interstate 91 South just north of Exit 48 around 10:20 p.m. when it hit a woman who was standing directly in front of the vehicle. The driver did not stop, state police said.

Yaseri Cortes, a 20-year-old from Springfield, Massachusetts, was pronounced dead at the scene.

News 8 spoke with Lou Andriulli from Enfield, who said these hit-and-run incidents are concerning, and he does what he can to avoid traveling on the highway.

“Now that I’m retired, I don’t need to go out there, ” Andriulli said. “You know, I just find a back road. It’s awful accidents, people dying left and right, and it always seems to be near the exit right here.”

There have been multiple hit-and-run accidents in Connecticut already this year. In January, a 70-year-old was found lying on the road in East Hartford and later died in the hospital. Earlier this month, a man died from a hit-and-run on Sherman Parkway in New Haven. A 58-year-old was found lying unresponsive on Lewis Avenue in Meriden a day earlier.

Anyone who witnessed the Enfield collision or has a car equipped with a dashcam is urged to contact Trooper Michael Dean at (860) 543-1098 or via email at michael.dean@ct.gov.
