Pedestrian struck by car Monday, released from hospital

Police say a 65-year-old woman was taken to the hospital for minor, non-life threatening injuries Monday morning after being struck by a vehicle in downtown Juneau.

Lt. David Campbell, a spokesman for the Juneau Police Department, told the Empire that the pedestrian was hit by a 1992 Jeep, driven by a 43-year-old woman, that was turning left from Third Street onto Main Street. It took place at about 8:05 a.m.

The pedestrian complained of a pain in her hip and was taken to the hospital by ambulance, but was later released, Campbell said.

There was no damage to the vehicle, Campbell said.

Campbell said he did not know who was at fault, or what the cause of the crash was. He said he did not know if the pedestrian was jaywalking outside of a crosswalk.

Neither woman was cited in connection to the crash.
