Close Call for Adult Pushing Stroller

Emergency responders were called to the crosswalk at the intersection of School and Washington Streets mid-morning on Friday. An adult pushing a stroller was thought to have been been struck by a vehicle. According to one witness, the driver may have been blindsided when the woman pushing the stroller stepped out from behind a telephone pole. Officers Ward, Heney, and Griffith investigated. The woman and child were transported to the hospital. The stroller was removed from the street by an officer. The injuries weren't believed to be serious.HollistonReporter.com received this from the womans husband:

I just want to clarify for the record the story about the accident at School Street this morning.  My wife did not step out from behind a telephone pole and blindside the driver.  She in fact was in the middle of the crosswalk when the car hit the stroller with our 1 year old daughter inside.  Both lanes of traffic had stopped to allow them to cross, and the driver came out of School Street and struck them, apparently not seeing them.  This can be confirmed by Officer Tim Heney.  I just want to set the record straight as my wife and daughter are a bit traumatized by today's events and it's adding to my wife's distress that the article makes it appear that the accident was her fault, which it 100% was not.

What a horrible experience for this mother and infant! I truly hope both are okay. Nobody should ever have to be fearful for their life when they step out to share the roads and sidewalks in Holliston. I wonder if the driver was cited?

Might help if the town painted the crosswalk so it was visible and installed pedestrian crossing signs. I almost got hit crossing at Winter st at the Washington Street end and part of the problem is there is no painted crosswalk there.
