Teenager struck by van in Peterborough Monday
The accident occurred around 4:45 p.m. on Monday, said Peterborough Police Capt. Ernie Belletete Wednesday.
There is no crosswalk in this area of Route 202.
Belletete said police are not identifying the 16-year-old Peterborough boy at this time.
His injuries turned out to be more serious, Belletete said, and as of Tuesday he had been transferred to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon to be treated for a punctured lung and broken ribs. He is expected to recover, Belletete said.
Belletete said the accident is being investigated, but it appears Murphy did not see the teen in time because it was dark and the teen was wearing dark clothing.
“It appears no wrong doing on the part of the driver,” he said. “No alcohol, drugs or speed on the part of the driver.”
