Police: Livonia Woman Hit By Car In Crosswalk, Seriously Injured

June 15, 2018 - 3:37 pm

LIVONIA (WWJ) - An elderly Livonia woman is hospitalized after she was hit by a car while trying to cross the street.

According to police, the 81-year-old pedestrian was crossing Middlebelt Road at 6 Mile in the crosswalk, just after 11 a.m., when she was struck by a vehicle driven by a 31-year-old Taylor man. 

The woman was taken by the Livonia Fire Department to a local hospital where police said she was being treated for serious injuries. 

The driver was not hurt. 

It's unclear at this time if the driver just didn't see the woman, what else may have led to the crash, of if he will face charges. As an investigation continues, police said it does not appear that alcohol, drugs or speed played a role. 

The intersection was closed for a couple of hours, with police on the scene investigating into the afternoon, but has since reopened. 

No names have been released.
