Police: woman struck outside of crosswalk


WESTERLY — A local woman injured after being struck by a vehicle near Granite and Cross streets Tuesday was not in the crosswalk police have determined.

Kimberly A. Carlin, 53, of 122 Cross St., was crossing the street after reportedly parking her car and going in the Cumberland farms to get coffee. According to surveillance tape information from the store and reconstruction of the accident scene, police said it is evident Diane M. Miller, 40, of 73 Healey Brook Drive, Charlestown, did not strike Carlin in the crosswalk.

Miller told police the traffic light from Cross Street extension to Granite Street had turned green and she did not see anyone on the crosswalk as she began to turn on to Granite Street. Carlin was struck by the driver’s side bumper of Miller’s car. Carlin suffered injuries to her face, including a broken nose. She was transported to the Rhode Island Hospital where she was treated and released Thursday afternoon.

The accident reconstruction investigation indicated Carlin was about 13 feet south of the crosswalk when she was hit. Police also said Miller’s view may have been obstructed because of glare, which she acknowledged at the scene of the accident on Tuesday.
