WASHINGTON CITY– A woman on foot was hit by an SUV this afternoon in Washington and was transported to the hospital.
Around 1 p.m., a woman was crossing 3050 East in Washington on the portion of street between Petco and Port of Subs where there is no crosswalk, no signal and no stop signs and where the two shopping centers have ingress and egress to the street.
Witness Kristen Hall said she saw an SUV making a left turn onto 3050 East from the Petco parking lot when it hit the woman.
“She got nailed and went flying,” Hall said, and said the woman impacted the road head-first.
The woman was initially unconscious and was bleeding from her head. However,she did regain consciousness, Hall said, and was alert and responsive with first responders after they arrived at the scene.
The Washington City Police Department diverted traffic around the accident while the woman was tended to. Many vehicles passed through the Albertson’s parking lot.
Ed Kantor, public information officer for the WCPD, said the woman was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The scene was cleared by about 1:40 p.m.
The investigation into the accident is ongoing, Kantor said.
