BOSTON (AP) - Police say the driver of a duck boat that struck and injured a woman crossing a Boston street this month has been cited.

Police initially said after the July 10 crash that the 57-year-old woman walking in the city’s Back Bay was crossing the street against the signal.

Police Lt. Michael McCarthy tells The Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/2a564Vi ) that the 54-year-old driver was issued a citation for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

A lawyer for the woman says although the duck boat had a green light, his client also had a walk signal and there is a sign warning vehicles to yield.

A Boston Duck Tours spokeswoman says the company has not seen the citation and the driver is on vacation, but they understand it.
