Pedestrian struck on Arden Way, witnesses sought

Sacramento police would like to talk to anyone who witnessed a collision this afternoon in which a vehicle struck a pedestrian.

A woman was headed southbound across Arden Way at Oxford Street about 1:40 p.m. when she was hit by a vehicle. She suffered serious injuries and is being treated at an area hospital, according to a Police Department news release.

The driver of the vehicle, who remained at the scene, as well as witnesses reported that an uninvolved vehicle had to slow to avoid the pedestrian.

No description of the vehicle was available, but police would like to talk with the driver.

The pedestrian who was hit is described as a black woman in her early 20s. She was wearing a white T-shirt and pajama-type pants.
