By Meghann Ackerman, staff writer
A Watertown man was cited after running into a girl crossing Common Street at 7:35 a.m. Tuesday.
According to two witnesses stopped at a red light in the northbound lane of Common Street, the girl, a 14-year-old from Watertown, was crossing the street in the crosswalk and when she got to the southbound lane a driver suddenly hit his brakes and skidded into her.
The driver, a 67-year-old Watertown man was cited for a red light violation and failure to yield to a pedestrian in the crosswalk.
When police and firefighters arrived on the scene, the girl was laying in the southbound lane and had cut on the back of her head and complained of elbow pain. She was taken to Children’s Hospital.
([sic] all over the place, obviously.)
Elayna has been informed that next time she wants to be in the newspaper, she should find a better way of doing it.
