Driver fails to yield, hits pedestrian

Another pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in Wilmington. It happened around lunchtime Monday at the intersection of Grace and Front streets. A woman was crossing the street, in the crosswalk, when a green Dodge Durango didn't stop. The vehicle hit her while turning right onto Grace Street. ”She was walking across the street and it clearly said walk, and the Durango came around the corner and hit her ankle, clipped her, and it kind of jolted her and she fell up on the hood of the car and fell to her feet. She just came over here and she was clearly shaken up, very shaken up,” said witness Jen Schooley. Although shaken up, the victim didn’t appear to have any major injuries. The driver of the Durango was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian.
