SACO, Maine — A woman and her 3-year-old son escaped serious injury Thursday when they were struck by a vehicle while crossing Main Street, which is also Route 1, during afternoon rush hour, according to police.

Jessica Henry, 29, of Saco was pushing her child in a stroller when a car driven by Richard Mason, 80, of Gorham hit them in a crosswalk just before 4 p.m., according to Saco Deputy Chief Ray Demers.

Mason was not hurt in the crash, Demers said, while the boy suffered bruises and was taken to Maine Medical Center for treatment and then released.

The woman suffered a head injury, Demers said, but did not require a trip to the hospital.

The accident remains under investigation, according to Demers, and it’s unknown whether Mason will face charges, he said.
