Woman injured after being struck by vehicle on 23rd Street

Just to clarify some of the story's missing items (since I witnessed the event & called 911 from a Dillons phone): The pedestrian was in the middle turn lane on 23rd @ 5:45pm when a SUV making a legal turn into that lane struck the pedestrian. She was not hit again by another vehicle, she was underneath the SUV's front end. Unfortunately, she made a poor decision on a VERY busy street at a VERY busy time of day and I wish that I could go back to prevent her from doing so, but clearly I can not. I offer her & her family my heartfelt prayers & a speedy recovery, and also to the young man driving the SUV who was simply trying to merge with traffic in rush hour @ dusk who now has to live with that horrible sight/sound for the rest of his life.
