According to Springfield Police Spokesperson Ryan Walsh, a car went off the road around 9:45 a.m. Monday morning and hit two pedestrians on the sidewalk near the intersection of Dwight Street and Hillman Street. An investigation into the accident showed that the driver of the vehicle suffered a medical episode while driving. The vehicle stopped after hitting a water hydrant.
22News spoke with Gilbert Camacho of Holyoke who watched the whole thing happen, “It seems like there was a cop in the area because there was immediately a police officer in the area and people ran over to help.”
The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital for serious injuries. The two pedestrians were also taken to the hospital for their injuries but are expected to be okay.
The Springfield Police Traffic Unit will continue to investigate the accident.
