Fatal Pedestrian Strike in Westwood Under Investigation

Thanks to the Norfolk District Attorney's Office for contributing this news to Westwood Minute.

Westwood Police (WPD), Massachusetts State Police, and the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office are investigating a fatal pedestrian strike on University Avenue in Westwood this morning.

WPD received multiple 911 calls at or about 9:50 a.m. reporting the collision. Two nurses stopped to render first aid to the elderly female pedestrian at the scene until Westwood ambulance arrived to transport the victim. She was pronounced deceased at approximately 10:30 at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Needham.

The driver of the Nissan involved in the collision, an adult male, remained on scene and spoke to responding officers. Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services and the Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section (CARS) also responded to assist in the investigation.

Initial indications are that the victim was struck as she crossed the street coming from the retail complex crossing toward the side which features the nearby railway station.

The matter remains under active investigation with no charges in place at this time. Next of kin notification has not yet been completed, so identity of the deceased is not being released at this time.
