NORWOOD, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are investigating after a pedestrian was struck and seriously injured by a car in Norwood early Monday morning.
Officers responding to a reported crash on Washington Street around 1:10 a.m. found a 37-year-old Norwood man had been struck by a car while crossing the street, according to Norwood police.
He was transported to a Boston hospital with serious injuries.
The driver, identified as a 25-year-old Brockton woman, remained at the scene following the crash and is cooperating with the investigation, police said.
She did not report any injuries, police added.
Steven Rogers, who lives on the street, says drivers often speed down the roadway.
“This section of road is still a 30 mph zone but people fly through here, especially at night,” he said. “I have a kid here, a 5-year-old, and with people flying up and down the street, knowing somebody was hit right on this stretch of road, it’s scary stuff.”
Maggie Cignarella, who also lives nearby, says poor lighting could be to blame as well.
“It is a dark road and when people dress in dark, it’s a lot harder to see,” she said.
An investigation remains ongoing.
No additional information was immediately available.
