Woman Struck In Crosswalk Near Carlson School

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Another accident involving a pedestrian is reported near the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Daily reports a car hit a woman in the crosswalk outside the Carlson School of Management on Friday afternoon.

Emergency responders took the woman to a hospital shortly before 5 p.m. Her condition is unknown. But Minneapolis police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer tells the Star Tribune that he does not believe the ambulance that took her to the hospital had its lights or sirens activated, so he surmises her injuries are not life-threatening.

It’s the third accident involving pedestrians or a bicyclist near the university in the past week.
