WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — A man was rushed to the hospital in grave condition after being hit by a car in Woonsocket Thursday evening.

Woonsocket Police Lieutenant John Picard said the man, 67, was hit by a car while crossing Hamlet Avenue.

Picard said the man was wearing dark clothing and was not walking in a crosswalk.

The driver, a 19-year-old pizza delivery driver, remained on scene and is cooperating with police. Picard said he isn’t facing any charges at this time.

“We’re looking into the fact he may have been distracted at the time of the accident,” Picard said of the driver. “We are also urging people to use caution when crossing the street in general.”
