WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A 66-year-old pedestrian was hit by a vehicle Monday morning while trying to cross Main Street.
Police said the man, whose name was not released, walked into the street without warning just east of Cole Avenue where the road curves. He was not in a sidewalk and was hit by a 1994 Oldsmobile driven by Michael Richardello of North Adams.
The man was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital by paramedics with Village Ambulance Service with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
The accident is under investigation but police say they have determined that Richardello was not at fault.
