Pedestrian taken to Abilene hospital after being struck by vehicle


ABILENE, Texas - A 32-year-old woman crossing Chestnut Street near the Taylor County Courthouse was struck by a vehicle before noon Tuesday and had to be taken to Hendrick Medical Center.

She was able to speak with paramedics and had what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, according to Abilene police.

She was one of two pedestrians who appear to have been crossing the street at a spot not designated for crossing.




"They were just crossing in the middle of the street," an officer at the scene told KTXS.

The officer said the vehicle came from South 3rd Street and made an appropriate right turn into the lane he should have been in.

"By the time he saw them it was too late," the officer said, adding that citations could be issued.
