Thanks for the story Whitney. It is great to hear that the pedestrian who was struck by the car may not have sustained serious injuries. A group of students at the Meditation Museum saw the incident and took a few moments to send good wishes and pure feelings to the person who was struck and also to the driver who was certainly shaken up.

It would be a lot more helpful to know more of the circumstances. Was she in the crosswalk? Walking with the light?

absolutely right, Barbara. that's the type of information the police department provides, since they investigate the collision while the fire/rescue people are there to assist with injuries. mcpd didn't have details at the time the story was reported.
