Pedestrian hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after being hit by truck in Boston

BOSTON — A pedestrian was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after they were struck by a truck in Boston on Thursday morning, officials said.

Officers responding to a report of a crash in the area of Essex Street and Atlantic Avenue found a person hurt in the street, the Boston Police Department said in a post on X just before 7:45 a.m.

The victim, whose name hasn’t been released, was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

“Traffic in the area is impacted. Please seek an alternative route,” the department warned motorists.

This pedestrian crash comes just two days after a man in a wheelchair was fatally struck by a cement truck on Frontage Road.
