When asked about the crash, Boston police said they responded to a call for a pedestrian struck on Commonwealth Avenue about 7:15 p.m. Saturday, and said the victim was being treated by Boston firefighters, who were already at the scene when officers arrived.

Officers said the driver, who stayed at the scene, told them he was on Hereford Street taking a left turn onto Commonwealth Avenue when he struck the pedestrian crossing the street. He said he couldn't see the pedestrian wearing all black clothing in the dark and rainy conditions. Police have not identified the driver, but say he was issued a citation.

Fitzgerald told WFXT that Haslet's injuries will likely end her chance to run in this year's race, saying she was part of the fabric of his team, but that they are still rooting for her every step of the way.

"I can feel your love and support and I just want to say thank you. I'm really scared, but I think I'm in good hands," said Haslet.
