Stop the press!
Sarah L. Fortuna was hit by a car. I think I might have willed it to happen because I’ve always said that I wouldn’t be surprised if I get run over by a bus (my road-crossing skills aren’t the best).
What if my thoughts about me (Sarah L. Fortuna) getting hit by a car led to the other Sarah L. Fortuna getting hit by a car. eek.
FALL RIVER —
Two pedestrians were involved in two separate motor vehicle accidents on South and North Main streets recently.
Neither were seriously injured, police said.
A 2003 Chevrolet driven by Dennis Ayotte, 63, of 456 Woodman St., struck Alice Rego, 38, of 992 Rego St., about 9 a.m. Monday near 690 South Main St., police said.
They said Ayotte, heading north, stopped the car about 200 feet away from the scene, checked with Rego, apologized and left the scene.
Police cited the driver for leaving the scene of an accident after knowingly causing bodily injury.
Rego was transported to St. Anne’s Hospital for treatment.
Ayotte told police he didn’t realize he had to provide personal identification.
Sarah L. Fortuna, 22 of 21 North St., was transported to Charlton Memorial Hospital last week after a 2006 Toyota driven by Brenda DeMello, 64, of 84 Cory St., struck her, police said.
They said Fortuna and a second pedestrian crossed President Avenue to get to the Burger King about 7:30 p.m. A witness told police neither pedestrian looked at the traffic. Police said they did not cite the driver. Fortuna complained of back pain.
