Police: NH driver hit 72-year-old pedestrian while backing out of Walgreens' parking lot
HUDSON — A Nashua driver allegedly hit a 72-year-old woman while backing out of a Walgreens' parking lot.
The Hudson Police and Fire Departments responded to Walgreens Pharmacy at 90 Derry Street for a car crash involving a pedestrian on Saturday around 4:37 p.m.
Police determined that a 2015 Dodge pickup truck - operated by Eric Beauchert, 46 - backed out in a westerly direction within the parking lot. At the same time, Gail Kazlouskas, 72 of Hudson, walked south in the parking lot, leading to the pickup truck hitting Kazlouskas, police said.
Officials transported Kazlouskas to St. Joseph Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the collision is under investigation, but police said impairment and excessive speed do not appear to be a factor.
