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.
