As per the report, the 52-year old woman was crossing an intersection at University Drive. At the same time, a jeep was traveling westbound down the same route. Without warning, the vehicle plowed into the woman for indeterminate reasons. First responders attended to the pedestrian and transported her to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Reports also confirmed the driver of the Jeep stayed at the crash site to cooperate with law enforcement.

We extend our most heartfelt prayers and most loving thoughts to the pedestrian and wish her a swift and efficient recovery.
At present, authorities are working hard to determine what exactly caused the crash. Officials may also consider if drunk driving, drug abuse, negligence, distracted driving, or reckless behavior contributed to the events leading up to the crash. Law enforcement will also consider if the pedestrian was walking outside a designated crosswalk area. By law, drivers must decrease speed and provide the right of way to pedestrians in unmarked or marked walking zones.
