A woman was hit at by a car while crossing Hill Street and was transported from the scene in an ambulance Thursday evening, according to Ann Arbor Police. The incident happened near the intersection of Hill Street and South Division Street shortly after 6 p.m.
A stretch of Packard St. was shut down north of Hill St. as of 6:30 p.m.
Ann Arbor Police officers on the scene were unable to confirm whether the woman was a University student.
Ann Arbor resident Michael Schultz was walking behind her when she was hit on her left side.
“The gist of it: A car ran a red light with a pedestrian in the crosswalk,” Schultz said.
Schultz said the pedestrian was thrown onto the hood of the white car on impact after the car ran a red light.
“The light changes, the ‘don’t walk’ sign is white, and that person — being a few steps ahead of me — steps forward first,” Schultz said. “I was just starting to step forward myself, then out of the corner of my eye a white car passes by then there was a thud. I didn’t even process when I heard someone screaming, and I turned around and I see her fall off the hood.”
Officers said the woman was conscious and speaking when they arrived.
