NORWALK, Conn. — A motorcyclist died after a collision with a car on Main Avenue in Norwalk on Thursday afternoon, according to Sgt. James Boff. He was identified as Michael Miller, 29, of Glenndenning Street.
Both the motorcyclist and the driver of the car, an 18-year-old Wilton woman, were taken to Norwalk Hospital after the collision at about 3:30 p.m. in the area of 632 Main Ave., according to firefighters on the scene. Boff said Miller was pronounced dead at the hospital.
A Greenwich police officer was applying CPR to Miller when firefighters arrived, Boff said. He was lying in the road, and his helmet was several feet away. Police seized the red helmet as evidence.
The driver of the car, a 2008 Subaru, had been traveling south on Main Avenue when she decided to turn around by going into the Town Fair Tire parking lot, Boff said. She saw the motorcyclist heading north. As she turned into the parking lot, he hit her car. The motorcycle, a 2007 Kawasaki, sustained heavy front end damage, Boff said. The Subaru had heavy damage to the rear passenger side and the back windshield was smashed.
Police are investigating. Traffic was backed up on Route 7 after the accident.
