Pembroke: Teen struck by car, med-flighted to Boston hospital

A teen was flown to the hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a car Wednesday morning in Pembroke.

Pembroke Fire Capt. Kenneth McCormick says they got a call just after 7 a.m. for a 13-year-old boy struck by a car at the intersection of Oldham Street and Shores Edge.

Capt. McCormick says he believes the boy was waiting for, or attempting to get on a school bus when he was struck. He says they called for a MedFlight as soon as they got the report from police about the incident.

When Pembroke emergency crews arrived they found the boy lying on the ground with a leg injury and possibly head injury. He was conscious and given emergency treatment in an ambulance; a MedFlight helicopter arrived around 7:25 a.m. and transported the boy to Tufts Medical Center with serious injuries.

Pembroke police say the driver of the vehicle is an out-of-town resident. No other details about the driver are being released because no charges have been filed.

Police have spoken to several witnesses who were in the area when the teen was struck. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
