Woman seriously injured after being struck in crosswalk
A woman sustained life-threatening injures Thursday morning after being hit by a truck in a downtown crosswalk.
The driver, who was not identified, could be charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian, said Spokane police Officer Teresa Fuller.
A Chevy pickup was turning left from First Avenue onto Post Street on a green light when the accident happened. The woman also had the go-ahead on a walk sign.
The victim, who also was not identified, suffered head trauma and was transported to a local hospital, Fuller said. Her condition was not available Thursday night.
Police say there is no indication of drugs or alcohol being involved.
