This is excerpted from an online article from my local newspaper:
A female jogger suffered life-threatening injuries when an SUV struck her this morning. She is being hospitalized while police investigate what caused the collision.
The incident occurred around 8 a.m. near the corner of L Blvd and LP Drive.
A police spokesperson said that the driver was traveling on eastbound L Blvd and hit the jogger while she was preparing to jog across at or near a marked crosswalk.
The impact threw the victim into the air and caused her to land in a traffic lane on L Blvd, the spokesperson said. The driver then remained at the scene.
Police believe that the driver may have committed a right-of-way or a red light violation before the collision. It does not appear that alcohol was involved and police are still contacting witnesses in their investigation.
No criminal charges were filed against the driver as of press time.
The victim has not been identified since she lacked some form of identification. [emphasis mine]
“That’s making our efforts to identify her that much more difficult,” the spokesperson said.
The victim is described as being in her 30's or 40's.
Friends, PLEASE wear your Road ID and be careful out there!!!
