UPDATE A 68-year-old Fairfield man was struck and killed late today on Post Road East at the Fairfield town line, police said.
The accident occurred at about 6 p.m. in front of Shake Shack, 1849 Post Road East.
The driver, a 16-year-old Westport resident, was not injured, and he remained at the scene, witnesses said. The windshield of his car, traveling westbound, was heavily damaged.
Police late tonight identified the man as Bruce Tabackman—an attorney in Fairfield who at one time practiced in Westport—and said he was pronounced dead at Norwalk Hospital. A preliminary investigation showed he was not walking within a crosswalk, police said.
