UPDATE: Woman injured in crosswalk crash expected to recover
(ABC 6 News) – UPDATE: Rochester police said Wednesday that the woman struck in the W River Parkway crosswalk Monday is injured, but expected to recover fully.
(ABC 6 News) – A 27-year-old Rochester woman was taken to St. Marys with possible leg and internal injuries after being struck in a NW crosswalk.
Rochester police responded to the intersection of 37th Street and W River Parkway NW at about 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24.
They found the woman in the crosswalk, after being struck by a 32-year-old man driving a 2014 Chevy Cruze.
According to witnesses, the woman was heading north on W River Parkway and reached the intersection while cars and pedestrians on that street had a red light.
According to the witnesses, the woman must have thought she had time to cross the street anyway, and so she ran across 37th Street in the crosswalk, but against a red light.
The driver, who was heading west on 37th Street, said he didn’t see the woman “until the last second.”
Rochester police are still investigating the incident.
