Eversource worker hit by a car in Carver while working to restore power

CARVER, Mass. — An Eversource worker was hit by a car in Carver while working in the street to restore power.

Police said the crash happened around midnight Tuesday in the area of 112 Main Street.

The southbound lane of the road was closed, but the northbound lane was open to traffic while Eversource worked to make repairs. A police detail was at the scene directing traffic.

Police said a woman driving a 2007 Nissan Murano was traveling north, never slowed down and crossed into the southbound lane, hitting the Eversource employee who was working in the middle of the road.

Police said the officer at the scene tried to warn both the driver and the worker before the collision.

Carver EMS rushed the Eversource worker to South Shore Hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

Police cited the driver of the car, who they identified as Denise Medico of Carver.

An Eversource spokesperson referred Boston 25 News to police for information.

A storm packing powerful winds toppled trees and downed power lines across Massachusetts on Monday, leaving tens of thousands of people without electricity.
