Pedestrian struck in Lynn on New Year’s Eve


LYNN — A female pedestrian was struck by a motor vehicle on New Year’s Eve, and is suffering from multiple injuries following the accident, Lt. Rick Donnelly said.

Susan Osborne, 61, of Lynn, was struck by a motor vehicle at approximately 4:59 p.m. on Dec. 31 at 130 Lynnfield St. The driver, a male Rhode Island resident, was not cited for the accident, Donnelly said.

Osborne’s injuries were not considered serious at the time and she was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital Boston for treatment. A hospital employee later contacted Lynn Police with an update that Osborne had multiple broken bones and a cranial bleed. The last update received by police was that she was stable, but incubated, and was scheduled for a Jan. 2 surgery, Donnelly said.

The cause of the accident isn’t known as police haven’t been able to speak with Osborne. The accident is under investigation, Donnelly said.
