Accident Injures Pedestrian

A LaCenter, Washington woman was taken to Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital for treatment of what were termed minor injuries after reportedly being struck by a motorist at the intersection of Second and Oak in downtown Hood River on Friday evening.  According to the Hood River Police Department, the 56-year-old woman and her husband were crossing the street in a crosswalk when a pickup truck drove through it and allegedly struck the woman.  The husband was able to get out of the way, and the woman told police she was unsure if the truck actually made contact with her or if she had sustained the injuries jumping out of the way.  When contacted by police, the driver of the truck was issued a citation for failing to perform the duties of a driver.
