Authorities say that an investigation revealed that a white Dodge truck was traveling from northbound Eubank onto westbound Indian School and had just entered the intersection. As it was turning, police say a female pedestrian in dark clothing started to cross the intersection from the median and not at the crosswalk.
APD reports the driver didn’t see the pedestrian and struck her with the passenger side of the truck. The driver then stopped and called 911 and the female was immediately taken to UNMH.
The pedestrian is currently receiving treatment for serious injuries. At this time, police state that it doesn’t appear that alcohol or speed were contributing factors in the crash as it appears to be the result of pedestrian error.
There are no charges pending currently. Eubank at Indian School was closed during the investigation but has since reopened.
