"It happened at night just one month ago. An 87 year old Providence woman tried to cross North Main Street at Doyle Avenue, was struck by a car and seriously injured. Attempting to cross at this poorly lit intersection, this slow moving, elderly woman had little chance to avoid the car in this zone of fast moving traffic."
