Dog-Walking Pedestrian Struck by Car on Main Street

Staff Reports
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A man walking his two dogs across the top of Main Street was struck by a small sedan early Monday afternoon. 
 
Although the man was standing and talking with emergency medical technicians and police officers, he was eventually taken by Northern Berkshire EMS for treatment of a shoulder injury. The two dogs, medium-to-large animals, were taken to Greylock Animal Hospital by the animal control officer to be checked out. 
 
The pedestrian was apparently crossing where a crosswalk had been taken out years ago on the eastern side of the Main, Eagle and Ashland streets intersection.
 
"They were walking across the street and the car came around the corner making a left turn off of Eagle on to Main and hit the guy while he was walking," Sgt. Albert Zoito said. The pedestrian did not appear to be seriously injured he said. "A shoulder injury at this time that is all it looks like."
 
But, he said, one of the dogs appeared to be bleeding.
 
"The dogs are being checked out," he said. "I guess one of them was bleeding a little bit and might of got hit."
 
The operator of the vehicle gave information to the police and Zoito said charges are pending.
 
North Adams Fire Department also responded.
