Second pedestrian hit in two days...

From the Falmouth Police Department (verbatim):

A North Falmouth man was injured Wednesday afternoon when he was struck by a pickup while crossing Old Main Road.

Police and fire personnel responded to a report of a crash involving a pedestrian near the intersection of Old Main Rd. and Pine St. in North Falmouth at 4:46 pm. 

The 76-year-old man was treated for non-life threatening injuries by Falmouth Fire & Rescue medics, and then taken by ambulance to Falmouth Hospital.  

The driver of the pickup, a 64-year-old North Falmouth man, remained at the scene and was cooperative with the investigators. 

An investigation revealed that the pedestrian was not in a crosswalk and in a dark section of the roadway at the time of the crash. As a result, a citation was not issued to the driver.
