Pedestrian struck by car in Newport hospitalized
Candace Murphy, 21, of Newport was taken to Valley Regional Hospital in Claremont with what appeared to be non-serious injuries, Newport police Cpl. Charles McLeman said Sunday night.
Murphy was running across the intersection heading south on Elm Street at the intersection of South Main Street when she was struck by a four-door Kia, driven by Kim Baligad, 53, of Newport, which was passing through a green light in the interaction heading east from Elm Street to Maple Street, McLeman said.
It appears Murphy didn’t sustain serious injury and the Kia had minor front end damage, he said.
Police are still interviewing witnesses and investigating the accident. It appears that speed and alcohol were not a factor, McLennan said.
