CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) ─ Police are investigating after a 65-year-old woman was hit by a car while walking her dog in Cranston Thursday evening.

Cranston Police Col. Michael Winquist said a 22-year-old woman was driving on Farmington Avenue around 7:18 p.m. when she sped through a stop sign and lost control of her vehicle.

After the vehicle hit the woman, Winquist said it crossed the road before crashing into the front of a nearby home.

Both women were transported to Rhode Island Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, which Winquist described as “possible broken bones.”

Winquist said the driver has been cited, and no criminal charges have been filed at this time.
