PITTSBURGH - An East Liberty woman who was hit by a car near the intersection of 5th and Frankstown avenues Thursday morning suffered serious injuries, officials said.
Police said the accident happened after 7 a.m.
Channel 11's Renee Kaminski spoke to a witness, James Cloonan, who said the driver stopped and tried to help the woman until emergency medical personal arrived.
“She got knocked at least 15 or 20 feet,” Cloonan said. “She basically walked right in front of the woman’s car. There was nothing the driver could do.”
The woman was seriously hurt, Kaminski reported, and taken to Allegheny General Hospital for treatment. She is in critical condition.
Rachel Bupp said the intersection is very dangerous and she’d like to see something done about it.
“They need to lower the speed limit on this street. There’s no way you can cross the street until all lights are red,” Bupp said.
The victim’s name has not been released.
