Julio Rivera-Lucena, 56, had been hospitalized at Tufts Medical Center in Boston since the accident on Jan. 30. He died Monday, Feb. 12, according to an article published by the Lowell Sun.
According to investigators, Rivera-Lucerna was struck by an Audi Crossover at around 6:45 p.m, near 77 Bouchard Ave.. The driver of the vehicle, identified only as a female, stopped immediately after striking the pedestrian and stayed at the scene. Witnesses said she was extremely emotional as first responders tended to the victim.
After being treated at the scene, Rivera-Lucene was flown by Med-Flight to Tufts.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation. No citations or charges have been filed against the driver, as yet.
