Man injured when struck by car downtown
A 46-year-old city man was injured Monday night when he was struck by a car on Main Street.
The man, who was conscious and able to respond when firefighters arrived to the crash, was taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center with serious but nonlife-threatening injuries, police and fire officials said.
“Looks like he might have two broken legs,” said Nashua police Sgt. Eric Nordengren who responded to the 8:10 p.m. crash across from the Villa Banca Restaurant at 194 Main St.
According to Nordengren, the man, whose name police were not releasing, was walking east across Main Street at the Pearl Street intersection when a northbound silver Mitsubishi Mirage struck him near the East Pearl side of the street.
The 22-year-old driver of the Mitsubishi, a city woman, was not injured in the crash, fire officials said, and according to Nordengren, has not been charged. “The investigation is ongoing, though,” he added.
At 10 p.m., Nordengren and several other police officers were still working the crash scene, directing the sparse traffic at that time around the Mitsubishi that remained parked in the right lane just north of the intersection. The department’s accident reconstruction team was investigating the crash.
