Massachusetts driver hits wall, parked car, several pedestrians in Stop & Shop parking lot



Police in Massachusetts are investigating after multiple pedestrians were struck by a motor vehicle on Saturday morning.

According to Chief Julie Flaherty, at just after 10:15 a.m., Arlington Police and Fire responded to Stop and Shop, located at 905 Massachusetts Ave for a report of a motor vehicle crash involving multiple pedestrians. Upon arrival, Arlington Police Officers found several people injured in the parking lot and Arlington Police and Fire began to administer emergency medical care.

Arlington Police initiated an on-scene investigation and determined that the driver of a 2005 Mercury Marquis vehicle, an 87-year-old man from Belmont, was pulling into the Stop and Shop parking lot and struck an occupied parked vehicle and an exterior wall of the building. He then reversed the vehicle and struck multiple pedestrians.

Two pedestrians, a 61-year-old Arlington woman and a 70-year-old Randolph man were transported to area hospitals. The driver was also treated at the scene and transported to an area hospital.

The owner of the parked vehicle, a Harwich woman, did not report injuries.

This crash is under investigation by the Arlington Police Department. Access to the parking lot will likely be disrupted for much of the afternoon. The Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis & Reconstruction Section unit also responded to the scene to assist Arlington Police.
