February 25, 2012

NORTH SMITHFIELD – A 68-year-old female pedestrian was injured when she was struck by a car in the parking lot of the Slatersville post office Thursday, police said.
Marie Lessard, of 43 Warwick St., Woonsocket, was transported by rescue to Rhode Island Hospital with injuries police said were not life-threatening.
A car operated by Christopher Koney, 61, of Georgianna Drive, struck Lessard outside the post office, located at 15 Main St., at 2:38 p.m. Police said Lessard was walking through the parking lot when Koney struck her as he was backing out of a parking space.
