A pickup truck hit a pedestrian crossing Grand Boulevard in a crosswalk at 14th Avenue on Wednesday evening.

A woman was taken to a hospital via ambulance with non-life threatening injuries after the 6:15 p.m. accident, said Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Monique Cotton. Her son, who was with her, crossed the street ahead of her safely.

The road was closed briefly as emergency workers cleared the scene. The driver of the truck was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, Cotton said.
