A 74-year-old man and his 3-year-old daughter were walking the family dog Sunday morning when all three were hit by a car in a Winchester crosswalk, police said. Father and daughter survived, but the dog, a small white poodle, died at the scene, said Winchester police Lieutenant Peter McDonnell . The man and his daughter, neither of whom was identified, were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for a leg injury and face abrasions respectively, police said. Police and firefighters responded around 9:15 a.m. to several calls of a single-car accident at Church and Fletcher streets, McDonnell said. The driver of the car, an unidentified 84-year-old woman, stayed at the scene. “We believe she had a green light, but didn’t yield to the pedestrians,” McDonnell said. No arrests were made, according to McDonnell. Sergeant Thomas Groux said Sunday that officers expect the driver to be cited for failure to yield to pedestrians and failure to drive within marked lanes.
