Murphy was taken to the Brunswick hospital for treatment of pain in his neck, back and hip, according to Savary. He was released later Thursday, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

No additional information was immediately available late Thursday morning.

In February 2016, a 70-year-old woman who worked at Bath Iron works was struck and killed while crossing Washington Street in a crosswalk.
