FRAMINGHAM – A pedestrian, 15, was struck on Summer Street this morning after 7 a.m. and needed to be flown by air ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Boston.

Just before 7 p.m. at 6:55 a.m., at Summer & Beacon Street, a “Keefe Tech student”, 15, was struck by a motor vehicle, said Framingham Fire Chief Michael Dutcher.

“The first to arrive on scene was a firefighter reporting to work. He stopped and rendered aid before Engine 2 and Ambulance 5 arrived,” said Chief Dutcher.

Patient was transported to landing zone at Mass State State Police and taken by air ambulance (helicopter) to Children’s Hospital in Boston with a head injury, said Chief Dutcher.

The girl “was crossing the street to get onto the school bus, which had the stop sign displayed.  An oncoming vehicle struck her,” said Framingham Police Lt. Rachel Mickens.

The driver of the vehicle “did remain on scene and was cited,” said Lt. Mickens.
