WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A pedestrian suffered significant injuries and her dog was killed when they were struck by a vehicle on Main Street on Monday evening.
 
A Williamstown woman was crossing Main Street from north to south near Luce Road when she was struck by an eastbound vehicle at about 5 p.m., Williamstown Police said on Tuesday.
 
Her injuries included a broken leg and cuts on her face. She was "going in and out of consciousness when officers arrived," interim Police Chief Michael Ziemba said.
 
"First arriving police officers rendered first aid with passersby who had stopped to assist at the scene until [Northern Berkshire EMS] arrived," Ziemba said.
 
Fire Department personnel also responded to the scene to assist with first aid and traffic control.
 
Her dog was transported to Greylock Animal Hospital, where it was pronounced dead, Ziemba said.
 
The operator of the vehicle is from Adams, Ziemba said.
 
The incident is currently under investigation by Williamstown Police.
