BROCKTON (CBS) – A woman was struck by a police cruiser on Main Street in Brockton Tuesday evening.
State Police say a Brockton Police officer was responding to an emergency call in a marked cruiser with its emergency system activated when the woman was hit.
The officer stopped and administered first aid. She was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital. Her condition is unknown.
People who live in the neighborhood said the victim is in her 70s.
“She invites everybody over to her house. Little parties and stuff,” said Chris Ransom. “She helps all the children. She watches some of the children she’s very polite. She’s nice to get to know. My prayers go out to her and her family because that’s just sad what happened.”
