Pedestrian was in Crosswalk, Driver Issued Ticket
The investigation continues into a crash that seriously injured a pedestrian that was crossing Maple Street on Thursday morning.
The driver who struck a pedestrian that was crossing Route 62 on Thursday morning has been issued a traffic ticket.
Danvers police said on Thursday afternoon that Gailute Urbonaite-Narkeviciene, 44, of 281 Maple St. was issued a citation for failure to yield in a crosswalk, according to Danvers Police Capt. Patrick Ambrose.
Urbonaite-Narkeviciene was driving east on Route 62 in a Lexus sport utility vehicle at the time of the crash with a passenger in the vehicle. Neither of them were injured.
The crash happened at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday on a section of Maple Street that is also Route 62, near the intersection with Burley Avenue. The victim, whom police have yet to identify, was a 32-year-old Danvers woman who suffered life-threatening injuries.
She was taken from the crash by Lyons ambulance to Great Oak Elementary School, where a Boston MedFlight helicopter landed and took her to Massachusetts General Hospital. She was in serious condition with life-threatening injuries on Thursday afternoon.
The crash remains under investigation by the State Police, who are undertaking an “in-depth investigation” to determine the exact circumstances of the crash. Ambrose said.
“We’re looking into all possible circumstances,” Ambrose said, including the condition of the vehicle.
