An unidentified female Boston University Medical Campus employee remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries today at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center after being hit by a car last night on Commonwealth Avenue near Harry Agganis Way.
An investigation of the accident closed the westbound side of Comm Ave from the BU Bridge to Babcock Street for three and a half hours, and briefly suspended service on the B branch of the Green Line from Packard’s Corner to Blandford Street.
Boston Police say that the driver involved in the accident, which happened about 6:20 p.m., stopped and has not been cited. An investigation is ongoing. A witness riding in the car immediately behind the vehicle that struck the woman told the Boston Globe that the woman’s body shattered the vehicle’s windshield. The witness told the Globe that the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident “just broke down.”
