Boy, 6, and Man, 35, Receive Injuries in Separate Pedestrian Accidents

A six-year-old boy crossing the street after leaving his school bus on Broadway and a 35-year-old walking across Main Street were both victims of being struck by cars Thursday.

The child was taken to Lawrence General Hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. He was struck about 4:15 after departing a school bus at Broadway and Lake Street. According to police, the school bus had its flashing stop sign extended and lights flashing. A 24-year-old woman, driving a Nissan SUV, apparently was distracted trying to reach a pair of glasses, didn’t see the flashing lights and struck the boy, police said. She was cited for failure to stop for a school bus.

About an hour later, a 35-year-old man was struck on Main Street at Dudley Street. The man, who was not identified by police, appears to have suffered serious head injuries. He was also taken to Lawrence General Hospital. He was struck by a 2016 Subaru Forester, driven by a 76-year-old Atkinson. N.H., man. No charges have yet been filed.

A Massachusetts State Police helicopter, dispatched from Lawrence Airport, could be seen overhead.

  1. Finally! A story,albeit a tragic one, that Jack and Dan didn’t blame the Mayor, liberals, or “criminal invaders” ( aka brown- skinned people who don’t look like them).
