Man struck by car during storm while shoveling in Manchester
MANCHESTER - A pedestrian was hit by a car during the Blizzard of '15.
Police responded to the area of 173 Huse Road for a crash involving a single motor vehicle and a pedestrian at about 2:10 p.m. on Tuesday.
Manchester emergency workers were already treating a 47-year-old Queen City resident.
Police spoke with the operator of the motor vehicle, Samantha Furman, 25, of Manchester about the incident. According to her, the pedestrian was walking in the roadway when she noticed him. She first observed him as she turned on to Huse Road from Mammoth Road.
She said she made an attempt to stop her vehicle, but the inclement weather caused her car to slide on the ice and snow. This prompted her to utilize her horn in an attempt to get his attention. He did not hear the horn.
Police identified the man as Stephen Scarlett. He was transported to the Elliot Hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries to his facial area and lower extremities.
Furman, who was driving a 2003 Chevy Malibu, was not at fault for the crash as she had the right of way. The pedestrian in the roadway was the cause of the crash, according to the crash report.
