WATERVILLE — A pedestrian was injured and taken to a hospital Wednesday evening after she was hit by a car on Kennedy Memorial Drive, near JFK Plaza, according to police.

Officers said they received report of the crash just before 7 p.m.

Maj. Jason Longley of the Waterville Police Department said Thursday the crash reportedly happened just west of the traffic lights at the entrance to the shopping plaza.

Police said a 2022 Toyota Camry driven by a 19-year-old woman was westbound on Kennedy Memorial Drive when it hit the woman, 45, who was attempting to cross the road near the plaza. The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk, according to Longley.

“I do not have details on the pedestrian’s injuries at this time, but they were not considered severe,” Longley wrote in an email.

He said the pedestrian was taken by ambulance to Northern Light Inland Hospital at 200 Kennedy Memorial Drive, a short distance west of the plaza.


Police were not releasing the name of the driver, who lives in Oakland, according to Longley.

“The female operator of the vehicle was not injured in any way,” he said.

Longley said no charges had been filed in connection with the crash, which appears to have been an isolated incident.

“As far as pedestrian safety in that area, to my knowledge we have not really had a problem,” he said.
