Pedestrian injured when struck by pickup truck while crossing street in Farmington

FARMINGTON — A local woman was injured Monday just before 12:30 p.m. by a truck as she was crossing Main Street on foot.

Mackenzie Marles, 25, of Farmington was walking across Main Street to the opposite side of the road where Scott Hall, a University of Maine at Farmington residence hall, is located when she was struck by a truck driven by Kelly Dexter, 62, of Belgrade, said Farmington police officer Jesse Clement.

Dexter had been heading south and was turning right onto Depot Street, which runs beside Scott Hall and a parking lot at Old South First Congregational Church. He was looking in the direction he was driving, Clement said.

Marles “was struck in the right shoulder. She got back up and walked to the side of the road,” Clement said.

She was in a crosswalk but it was difficult to tell it was a crosswalk because of the faded lines, he said. It is not a crosswalk that has a flashing light when pushed, he said.

Marles was taken by a NorthStar EMS ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital. She was still being treated at 3:25 p.m., according to Jill Gray, a representative of FMH.

Farmington Fire Rescue Department and UMF police responded to the incident.
