A pedestrian accident in Woodstock on Monday (December 21, 2015) morning involved serious injuries, including a concussion.
Woodstock Police responded to the accident at approximately 9:40 a.m. A 64-year-old man had been struck by a car in the 100 block of Route 47, which is just north of East Calhoun Street on Route 47.
