The Attleboro man was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment of significant trauma to his lower extremities.

Police said the driver of the vehicle remained on the scene and he did not appear to be intoxicated.

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office said that although the investigation remains ongoing, the driver was cited for motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation. He will be summoned into court at a later date.

A clerk magistrate hearing will determine if probable cause exists to charge the driver criminally, the D.A.'s Office said.

Police have not revealed the identity of the driver at this time.
