Nashua pedestrian seriously injured when hit by car

NASHUA - A local woman suffered serious injuries Friday night when she was hit by a car while walking on Amherst Street, police said.

Doreen Taylor, 48, was crossing Amherst Street about 8 p.m. Friday when she was hit by a car driven by Kevin Nickerson, 61, of Mont Vernon. A police sergeant said Friday night that Taylor was not in a crosswalk.

Taylor was taken to Beth Israel Hospital in Boston for treatment of her injuries, which police said were not life threatening.

Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors and Nickerson "immediately stopped" after the accident, police said.

Amherst Street was closed until about 1 a.m. because of the accident, police said.
