COLUMBIA — A woman was hit while crossing the road from a grocery store on West Business Loop 70.
The woman was conscious but bleeding when paramedics arrived. She spoke with them, and they took her to University Hospital. Her name was not released.
Columbia Police Officer Kevin Purdy said the woman had been alert — she saw the car coming toward her but didn't move out of the way fast enough. The driver stopped and stayed.
"It was not a hit and run case," Purdy said.
A black Toyota Corolla was at the scene, and a young woman spoke with the police officer. The lower left corner of the Toyota's windshield was shattered, and a few strands of hair were stuck between the broken glass.
The driver did not wish to comment on the accident, and Purdy did not confirm that the Toyota was involved in the accident.
