WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) – Community members in Westerly say they are mourning the death of a New York City woman who was struck by a vehicle while walking with her family near their summer home after Thanksgiving dinner.
Amy Mazzola Flynn was struck Thursday night on a road in the Watch Hill area of Westerly, where she was a longtime seasonal resident. Flynn, who was 48, died at the scene.
Her 11-year-old daughter was also struck, and was treated at a local hospital and released.
