Pedestrians Struck at Bus Stop on Lynnway

Just after 12:25 p.m., Troopers from State Police-Revere responded to the Lynnway northbound, at Harding Street, in Lynn to reports of a motor vehicle that had crashed into pedestrians at a bus stop. Preliminary investigation on scene indicates that, for reasons still under investigation, a 2009 Hyundai Accent sedan operated by a 32-year-old Lynn man veered off the road and struck the bus stop shelter. An adult woman at the bus stop suffered serious, life-threatening injuries and was taken by medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital. Another pedestrian in the shelter, an adult male, suffered serious injuries and was transported by ground ambulance to Salem Hospital. The operator of the Accent has been taken by ground ambulance to MGH for evaluation of possible minor injuries.

A second vehicle, a 2009 Nissan Murano sport utility vehicle operated by a 54-year-old Lynn man, may also have been involved in the crash.

The facts and circumstances of the crash, including what caused the Accent to go out of control and whether charges are warranted against either or both drivers, remains ongoing and is being conducted by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police, the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
