Pedestrian struck, killed by vehicle in Mission Hill

BOSTON (WHDH) - Police have confirmed that a pedestrian was struck and killed after being struck by a car in Mission Hill on Saturday.

The incident happened near the intersection of Hillside and Sunset streets. A witness told 7News she heard a loud crash and came outside to see the pedestrian had been hit and was pinned underneath the car. Several other neighbors came outside as well and 911 was called. The witness said the driver was very worried and said his car slid into the woman.

Boston Police identified the victim as 22-year-old Jessica Cosman, of North Grafton. The driver, a 20-year-old man, stopped after striking Cosman and cooperated with authorities. No charges are expected to be filed.

It was not immediately clear how the crash happened, though dangerous driving conditions have plagued the region as a result of a winter storm. Officials would not confirm if weather played a role in the crash.
