JUNEAU - The Washington woman struck by a local tour van and trapped beneath its wheels downtown Wednesday is still in serious condition today in a Seattle hospital.
Marian Noe, 65, of Olympia, Wash., sustained head, chest and arm injuries and is being treated at the Harborview Medical Center, said Kristin Foley, a hospital spokeswoman.
Police said Noe had stepped or fallen from the curb of a crosswalk in front of a parking lot north of the Mount Roberts Tramway station on South Franklin Street as a 15-passenger van struck her.
The front left tire of the van pinned her to the ground until several bystanders lifted the van and pulled her from beneath the wheel, a witness said.
