Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments Respond to Pedestrian Crash
BRIDGEWATER — Police Chief Christopher Delmonte and Fire Chief Thomas Levy report that the Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments responded to a crash involving a pedestrian Thursday night.
At approximately 7 p.m., the Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments responded to a report of a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian on Plymouth Street (Route 104) in the area of Waterford Village Apartments. After an initial investigation, police learned that the pedestrian, a 26-year-old Marshfield man, was walking west on Plymouth Street on the sidewalk when he took a left hand turn and walked in front of an oncoming vehicle, a 1993 BMW, also traveling west.
The driver of the BMW, a 21-year-old man from Cotuit, was unable to stop the car and struck the pedestrian, who was not using a crosswalk at the time of the crash. The Marshfield man was thrown approximately 10 feet by the crash, and sustained injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. He was taken by a Bridgewater ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital.
The Cotuit man driving the BMW remained on scene.
The crash remains under investigation by Bridgewater Police, and no charges have been filed against the operator of the motor vehicle.
