A woman was hit Monday afternoon by a large vehicle near the Lincoln City Cultural Center on 101 and was very seriously injured. CPR was being given to her at one point. An ambulance with lights and sirens was seen headed for North Lincoln Hospital.
Lincoln City City Manager said during Monday night’s city council meeting that a large vehicle was turning left off of 6th onto 101 while an elderly woman was in the crosswalk. She was hit and was injured very badly. She was loaded aboard a medical transport helicopter at North Lincoln Hospital and flown to a trauma center in Portland.
Mr. Hawker reminded everyone to be very alert for pedestrians in marked, as well as unmarked crosswalks, not only year round, but especially during the heavy tourist season.
