AGAWAM – A Springfield man has died of the injuries he suffered when he was struck by a car Monday afternoon in the Feeding Hills neighborhood.
Gregorio Padilla, 40, was admitted to the intensive care unit at Baystate Medical Center following the accident. Baystate officials notified Agawam police late last night that Padilla had succumbed to his injuries, Lt. Eric Gillis wrote in a press release.
The accident was reported around 2:45 p.m. Monday on Springfield Street at Kristen Lane. A preliminary investigation found the motor vehicle was traveling west on Springfield Street when it struck Padilla, Gillis said.
Investigators have not determined the cause of the accident. Special operations units of the Massachusetts State Police — including Collision Analysis and Reconstruction and Crime Scene Services – are assisting Agawam police with the investigation.
Springfield Street was closed between Rowley and Harding streets until 5 p.m. following the crash.
No charges have been filed against the driver of the vehicle, whom police did not identify.
