WAKEFIELD — Police over the weekend responded to a host of motor-vehicle related accidents, including a pedestrian accident in the area of 627 Main St. Saturday afternoon.

Police said that a 9-year-old girl was taken to Lahey Clinic in Burlington for treatment of cuts to her knees, elbow and wrist suffered during the accident.

According to witnesses, the girl ran between two cars into traffic on Main Street without stopping and a 62-year-old man from Haverhill driving a 2010 Ford did not see her until it was too late.

The girl’s parents were notified at about 1 p.m. No citations were issued.

Patrol Officer Gerald Holleran responded to the call.


Early Saturday morning a caller reported that a driver went into a utility pole on Franklin Street, causing damage to the pole and the front end of her 2005 Chevrolet.

Patrol Officer Ryan Doran responded to the scene at about 6:50 a.m. The driver, a 20-year-old woman from Stoneham, told Doran that she was tired while driving and nodded off before hitting the pole.

Her vehicle was towed from the scene and the Wakefield Municipal Gas and Light Department was notified.

At noontime another accident was reported at the intersection of Richardson and Main streets.

A 44-year-old man from Wilmington was driving a 2013 Ford and heading west on Richardson Street when he collided with a 2006 Toyota operated by a 23-year-old woman from Billerica who was backing out of a driveway.

The Wilmington man was cited for failing to use caution at an intersection (driveway and street).

Patrol Officer Holleran responded.


A motorized scooter valued at $3,000 was reported as stolen from a Vine Street home on Saturday at about 9:30 a.m.

The homeowner told Patrol Officer Holleran that he left his 2009 Honda Ruckus in the driveway of his home Thursday night and that it had been stolen between then and Friday morning. He also apparently told Holleran that the scooter had not been properly locked.
