STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Stamford police are asking the public for help in finding a driver who fled the scene of an accident that killed two people and seriously injured a third person.

The driver of a 2002 Nissan Altima fled on foot after running a red light and smashing into a Greenwich couple’s car Friday night on West Main Street in Stamford, authorities said.

Judith Andriulli, 70, of Greenwich, died Saturday morning, and her husband, Anthony Andriulli, 73, suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

“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.

A passenger in the suspect’s car — 50-year-old Henry Nixon, of Stamford — also died.

The Nissan driver is described as a black woman, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, who was wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and possibly a green jacket.

The Andriullis had just gone out for dinner and were driving their BMW 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.

Anyone with information is urged to call Stamford police.
