Pedestrian struck by vehicle in Houlton

Last night, the Houlton Police Department received a report of a motor vehicle accident on Franklin Street involving a pedestrian.

Police say a vehicle driven by 18 year old Alex Croxen of Houlton was traveling down the street when he approached two adults and one child walking down the side of the roadway pushing a snow blower.

Due to icy conditions and movements of the pedestrians, Croxen attempted to reduce his speed but lost control striking 34 year old Jill Acott, also of Houlton.

Police says that Acott was transported to the Houlton Regional Hospital with injuries.

According to police, the accident is under investigation but charges are not expected to be filed.
