Pedestrian struck on Hope Street in Bristol
A Providence man was treated for serious injuries Tuesday morning after being struck by a car driven by a Bristol woman on Hope Street.
Roger Castro, 57, was conscious when medics arrived and transported him to Rhode Island Hospital.
Police and Bristol Rescue were called to an area of Hope at State Street around 8:28 for a report that a pedestrian was hit by a car. According to witnesses, Mr. Castro had just got off the RIPTA bus and was attempting to cross Hope Street from behind the bus.
That's when he was struck by Mary Dwyer, 76, of Highland Road, who was traveling northbound.
Mr. Castro hit the windshield, and Ms. Dwyer pulled over to the side of the road.
"At this time, there had not been any citations for violations," said Dep. Chief Steve Contente.
Mr. Castro was not in a crosswalk.
