An oncoming vehicle hit a female pedestrian while she was crossing East Huron Street behind North Quadrangle Friday night at approximately 6 p.m.

According to Ann Arbor police at the scene, the female pedestrian did not cross East Huron at the designated crosswalk, and was hit by an oncoming eastbound red vehicle. The police said the driver of the vehicle did not see the pedestrian crossing.

The police said the victim suffered cuts, scrapes and a potential broken wrist, but was in stable condition. She was taken to University Hospital shortly after the incident.

LSA senior Courtney Nash, who witnessed the accident, said she saw the victim collide with the vehicle, shattering the windshield.

“She was walking across, and I turned and saw her go up on the windshield,” Nash said. “Then she fell on the ground, and we all rushed to see if she was ok.”

Nash also said the victim appeared to be a student, though police did not confirm this when interviewed by the Daily.

The driver of the vehicle declined comment.
