Littleton Police and Fire Departments Respond to Pedestrian Crash
LITTLETON — Police Chief Matthew Pinard and Fire Chief Scott Wodzinski report that the Littleton Police and Fire Departments responded to a crash involving a pedestrian Sunday evening.
At approximately 5:03 p.m., police and fire personnel responded to Ayer Road near Willow Road for a report of a pedestrian crash.
Upon arrival, first responders located a 41-year-old Littleton man who had been struck by a 2012 Ford Escape SUV.
The man had serious, visible injuries and was treated at the scene by Littleton Fire paramedics. He was then transported by Littleton Fire to an Ayer area hospital before being transferred to a Worcester area hospital with what are believed to be serious, life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the SUV, a 88-year-old Ayer man, stopped following the crash and was cooperative with police. He was transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The initial investigation indicates that the man was attempting to cross the road when he was struck by the SUV.
Ayer Road was closed off while police investigated.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation by Littleton Police and the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section (CARS).
