A woman was taken to the hospital Monday afternoon after her moped was struck by a car running a red light at Whalley and Sherman avenues.
Here’s what happened, according to Lt. Jeff Hoffman:
Shortly before 3:30 p.m., a Lexus traveling south on Sherman Avenue ran a red light at Whalley Avenue and struck a woman on a black moped, heading east towards downtown.
The woman appeared to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries. She was alert and conscious. Emergency personnel took her to the hospital to be checked out.
The driver of the Lexus was found to be at fault for the accident and was issued a ticket.

I’m sure glad that our State legislators have failed to pass auto red light legislation. It would be a shame to have violated the rights of this Lexus driver…..
SaveOurCity, the Aldermen and State legislators who were against that proposal are all heavily Union-backed.
Their primary concern, at the moment, is how many free car parking spaces they can wrangle for their employees, at the expense of Downtown tax growth and therefore everyone else.
Wage increases from City Hall are the secondary concern - also known as extracting as much money out of city residents as possible, in order to help buy larger SUVs for members in Westbrook.
All of their other initiatives are doomed to be ineffective and simply a screen to their agenda.
Who cares how many low income residents and city residents have to die as a result of their agenda.
