AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – A section of Springfield Street was closed in Agawam Wednesday night while police investigated a pedestrian accident.
Agawam Police Sgt. Jennifer Blanchette informed 22News that a 42-year-old woman was crossing Springfield Street at Kristen Lane, just before 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, when she was hit by a car. The woman was taken to Baystate Medical Center by Agawam Fire Department ambulance.
