Driver collides with pedestrian on Rockland crosswalk
Rockland — A driver turning out of a parking lot on a busy Rockland street collided with a man pushing a shopping cart in a crosswalk, causing injury to the pedestrian and sending him to the hospital.
Karen Riley, 51, of Augusta was exiting the parking lot at 2:03 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Breakwater Marketplace, 91 Camden St., and turned left on the street, according to a Rockland police report.
She reportedly failed to see Wayne Colson, 60, pushing a shopping cart on a crosswalk.
"We have not determined if she struck him or the cart," said Deputy Chief Wallace Tower. He said the make of the vehicle was not in his report.
Responders from Rockland Emergency Medical Services arrived on scene and transported Colson to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. He was injured in his left hip, Tower said.
According to the hospital on Sept. 6, Colson was admitted and treated. He is stable and remains at the hospital.
Tower said he does not believe charges will be filed against the driver.
