WATERVILLE, Maine — A Winslow man was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries Sunday after he was struck by a vehicle driven by a man in a supermarket parking lot, according to police.

Alan Sutherland, 43, was pushing a shopping cart full of groceries through the Hannaford parking lot on Kennedy Memorial Drive at about 3 p.m. when a car driven by Hubert Fougere, 71, also of Winslow, struck him in the leg, Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

Fougere’s vehicle partially ran over Sutherland’s right foot, but his injuries aren’t considered to be serious, Rumsey said.

Fougere was about to turn into an open spot in his Toyota Prius when he struck Sutherland, who was walking on his left.

Sutherland was taken to Inland Hospital in Waterville for treatment. A hospital spokeswoman had no update on his condition Monday.

No charges are expected in relation to the incident, according to Rumsey.
