A Raymond woman suffered multiple broken bones Thursday when she was hit by a passing vehicle as she retrieved her mail, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said.

Joan Bellows, 61, of Raymond was collecting mail from her mailbox on Mill Street about 12:21 p.m. when she was hit by a passing Ford F-150 pickup truck.

Bellows was transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment of multiple broken bones and abrasions on her extremities.

The injuries were serious but not considered life-threatening.

The driver of the pickup truck, 25-year-old Alex Hackworth of Southampton, has not been charged and the investigation continues, the sheriff’s office said.
