A Framingham woman was drunk when she was struck by a car she walked in front of on Hollis Street Sunday, police said.
Witnesses told the police that the woman, whom police did not identify, walked in front of the Lincoln sedan without looking before she was hit by the car around 11:30 p.m., police spokesman Lt. Ron Brandolini said.
The driver, a 43-year-old Framingham man, told police he was driving slowly north on Hollis Street because he had often seen people walking in front of cars.
“He said she walked in front of him and never saw her,” Brandolini said.
A witness backed up the driver’s story, the lieutenant said.
The woman, a 53-year-old Framingham woman, was hit by the car’s front passenger side and thrown to the ground. She was not in a crosswalk, Brandolini said.
Brandolini said the woman appeared to be intoxicated.
“She said she didn’t know what had happened,” Brandolini said.
The woman had a cut on her head and complained of a sore ankle so she was taken to MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham.
The driver has not been cited and the accident remains under investigation.
