Woman seriously hurt after being hit by SUV
A woman is in critical condition after being hit by a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) on the weekend.
At about 11 p.m. Sunday, a woman in dark clothing was bent over onto 152 Street, just south of 70A Avenue, when she was struck by a southbound SUV.
The 38-year-old woman, of no fixed address, may have been reaching for something on the road when she was hit, police say.
The driver, who said she didn't see the woman at first, then tried to swerve to miss her, stayed at the scene and was cooperating with police.
Drugs, speed and/or alcohol are not believed to be factors in the collision.
According to police, there have been 16 fatal motor vehicle accidents this year, seven of which involved pedestrians. There have been 18 serious collisions, six of which involved pedestrians.
According to Leader archives, there have been seven hit-and-run accidents that resulted in serious or fatal injuries.
