FALL RIVER (WBSM) — A pedestrian involved in a Fall River collision with a vehicle was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday.
Authorities responded to the intersection of Robeson Street and President Avenue at approximately 9 a.m. regarding an accident involving a motor vehicle and a pedestrian.
Upon arrival, investigators determined that a Honda Accord had been facing north when it stopped at a traffic signal. The vehicle then proceeded to turn left after the light turned green.
A pedestrian, however, was walking on the crosswalk onto Robeson Street as the Honda turned. The Honda then allegedly struck the crosswalk pedestrian as they turned left (west) onto President Avenue.
The pedestrian suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Saint Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford.
He is currently in stable condition, according to police.
