On Monday night a 60-year-old woman was critically injured after being hit by a car.
The incident happened at around 8 p.m. in the 4500 block of S. Adams St.
Kammi Bishop, 32, reported she was headed home from work and was southbound on Adams St. driving her 2003 Ford Expedition. Bishop reported that she was talking to her husband on her cell phone when all of a sudden she heard a “thud” and realized she had struck someone, according to MPD Deputy Chief Stephen Dorsey.
Bishop reported that she immediately stopped and called 911. Bishop reported that she did not see anyone on the roadway due how dark it was through the area.
The victim was identified as 60-year-old Pamela Turner.
Turner sustained a severe head injury and had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from her breath, Dorsey said. Marion police officers reported that it appeared that Turner, who was wearing dark colored clothing, attempted to cross Adams Street at an area where a crosswalk was not designated.
Turner was transported to a hospital in Indianapolis where she remains is in critical condition.
Police do not suspect that alcohol was a factor by the driver of the vehicle.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
