A pedestrian was seriously injured in Sparks, Nevada yesterday when she was hit by a vehicle as she was crossing the street. The woman was said to have been in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident. She was specifically said to be crossing at 9th Street and C heading north. The accident occurred around 3am in the morning yesterday as she was struck by the van, said to have been a 1990 GMC made vehicle. The driver of the van has not yet been charged with a crime, though police stressed that an investigation is ongoing and results so far were too preliminary to have made any arrests or conclusions in this Northern Nevada pedestrian accident. That generally means that police do not suspect alcohol to have been a major factor, as that is something they usually look for first in the parties involved in a vehicle or pedestrian accident in the Reno area, and all of Nevada and perhaps the country.
The woman, a 49 year old, was rushed to Renown Regional Medical Center. She was found at the scene to be unresponsive and exhibiting clear head injuries when first responders arrived. She was on life support at last report we had. We are certainly praying, with any number of people, that she pulls through with no lasting injuries, scars, or general impediments to life. We have seen too many people that that was not the case for, and we understand the import and consequences as well as anyone, at least anyone who has had to deal with that themselves personally.
