UPDATE, Wednesday, 4 p.m. — Mass General Hospital reports that the 31-year-old Arlington Road resident is listed in "serious" condition this afternoon after he was struck by a car Tuesday night. 

 

Wednesday, 10:30 a.m. — A 31-year-old man remains in the hospital this morning after a pedestrian accident last night.

The Arlington Road resident was crossing the street at Washington and Erie streets, near Leland Park, when he was struck by a car, reported Woburn Police.

The man was walking with his son, who was not injured, said police. According to witnesses, the man was leaving a Pop Warner event when the crash occurred.

According to police, an 88-year-old driver struck the man in the crosswalk just before 8 p.m. Tuesday night. The 31-year-old man reportedly sustained "life-threatening injuries" and was transported to Mass General Hospital, said police.

The man who hit the pedestrian is 88 years old. I have two quick thoughts, Should an 88 year old man be driving. MA DRIVERS NEED TO SLOW DOWN and pay attention to pedestrians, cyclists & cross walks. I'm glad the little boy was not hit also and hope his father fully recovers quickly.

we need everybody to say prayers for this father he is in very serious condition and his kids are missing him very much lets hope the power of prayer gives him the strength and the fight to recover. I hope they go after the person who forgot to stop at a crosswalk esp. near a field where children play.

I have known the victim for 15 years and he has been an important part of my family for over 10. He is a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. He is fighting for his life and my family needs a miracle. Please keep him in your thoughts and pray for him and his 2 young children that need him so much.

This senseless tragedy has ended in a great loss. He was a great guy who didnt deserve this. Thankfully his wife and children have GREAT family and friends to lean on in this time of sorry. I can only hope the person responsible does the right thing. R.I.P. may you fly with angels and watch over us all.
