Trick-or-Treater Struck by Vehicle in Williamstown

Staff Reports
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A pedestrian struck by a vehicle on Cole Avenue during trick-or-treating hours showed no signs of visible injury, police reported Friday morning.
 
Chief Kyle Johnson said the person struck was transported by Northern Berkshire EMS to the satellite emergency facility at Berkshire Medical Center's North Adams campus as a precaution.
 
The driver involved was cited by police for a lights violation. The driver was operating with just the vehicle's daytime running lights illuminated after sunset, Johnson said. 
 
The chief said it is his understanding that the pedestrian involved was a trick-or-treater. He could not provide the age of the individual.
 
According to the police log referenced by Johnson on Friday morning, the pedestrian attempted to cross between parked cars.
 
"There's no reference to a crosswalk in the paperwork I've seen," he said.
 
Witnesses told iBerkshires.com that it was not raining at the time of the accident, and Johnson confirmed Friday morning that it did not appear weather was a factor in the incident.
 
A number of communities, including North Adams and Pittsfield, postponed trick-or-treating hours to Saturday because of the expectation of heavy rain and high winds, neither of which arrived until after midnight. There was, however, light and misty rains throughout the evening.
