The 30-year-old teacher was jogging near his home when he was hit by a car at the intersection of Trout Brook Drive and Asylum Avenue.

The car was traveling south on Trout Brook Drive and had a green light when it went through the intersection, according to witness statements made to police.

The teacher was taken to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition and died from his injuries less than a week later.

The driver of the car is a 19-year-old from South Windsor. He did not suffer any injuries in the crash and no charges have been filed. However, the accident is still under investigation, according to West Hartford Police.

The teacher worked at RHAM Middle for six years, according to the regional school district superintendent.
