This past Thursday afternoon at 1:40 PM, a trash truck proceeding on McGrath Highway at the intersection of Somerville Avenue and Medford Street in Somerville was involved in an accident with a pedestrian.
A witness at the scene stated “That many accidents have occurred at this same location since the newly launched, dangerous traffic pattern was put in place earlier this year.”
The pedestrian was critically injured and transported to the hospital by ambulance to be treated for her injuries.
A state and local police investigation on the incident is still ongoing.
