Pedestrian, 80, struck by car in front of Falmouth church

An 80-year-old man suffered serious head injuries after he was struck by a car in Falmouth Sunday morning, according to police.

A 2004 gray Toyota Avalon driven by an 89-year-old woman pulled out of the St. Patrick’s Church parking lot, heading east on Main Street, and struck the man, who was walking in a crosswalk in front of the church at about 7:50 a.m., Falmouth police Sergeant Brian Kinsella said.


Witnesses told police the car was traveling fairly slowly when it hit the man, Kinsella said.

The man was taken by helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston to be treated for head trauma, Kinsella said.

Police cited the driver for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
