Bystanders rushed to the aid of a woman who was hit by a vehicle and seriously injured on Grand Avenue in Waukegan Thursday evening.
The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 8:10 p.m. Thursday to the area of Grand Avenue and Baldwin Avenue in Waukegan for a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle.
Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Brian Mullen told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that the pedestrian, a woman in her 20s, was crossing Grand Avenue east of Baldwin Avenue.
The driver of the vehicle was on Baldwin Avenue and made a left turn onto eastbound Grand Avenue.
The woman was in the center of the roadway, not a crosswalk, when the collision occurred, Mullen said.
The driver immediately stopped and remained on the scene after the crash. Police said that there were witnesses to the incident.
Paramedics transported the woman to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Mullen added.
A bystander told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that they along with a local sailor tended to the woman, who was unresponsive but breathing with a pulse.
The driver involved in the incident appeared to be sober, the bystander said.
Police officials did not provide further information and it is unknown if anyone was cited.
