A pedestrian was struck in Manchester Wednesday and later hospitalized, police said.
At approximately 11:47 a.m., Manchester Police received a call about a pedestrian struck on Golden Court near the intersection of Stonybrook Road. When police arrived, they found 64-year-old, Sandra Priggre of Whiting lying in the roadway with moderate injury sustained from the collision.
The investigation revealed that Priggre was talking to the 85 year old driver, Sara Greco, seated in her 1997 Toyota Camry with the driver’s side door open.
