A woman was hit by a white car a few yards away from the pedestrian crossing next to the round about by the Castries Market around 8:35 a.m. this morning, reports have said.
According to eyewitnesses, the woman was attempting to cross the road when the driver hit her. Those same eyewitnesses reported that the driver, although driving slowly, was not paying attention when he hit her.
“She was pinned against the car and was being pushed until she slipped and almost fell,” one eyewitness said.
A policeman passing along stopped to investigate.
The reports say that she was not using the pedestrian crossing to cross the road.
