A woman who was apparently jaywalking across Cooper Road Tuesday afternoon was hospitalized after she was hit by a truck.

Shortly after 1 p.m., emergency crews were called to the 1800-block of Cooper Road and learned that a 68-year-old woman was between intersections and crossing from Orchard Plaza to Orchard Park on her way back to work when she was struck by a truck turning onto Cooper from the mall parking lot.

“The 18-year-old male driver apparently looked both ways but did not see the pedestrian, who was not crossing on or near a crosswalk,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “The impact knocked the pedestrian onto a median where she sustained moderate, but non life-threatening injuries.”

The driver of the pickup truck was shaken but not injured, police say.
