A woman suffered major injuries Wednesday night when a pickup stuck her as she was crossing a street in west Modesto.
Naimah Barron, 34, tried to cross Emerald Avenue, just north of Elm Avenue, when she was hit by a GMC pickup. The pickup was heading south on Emerald about 9:40 p.m., said Modesto police spokeswoman Heather Graves.
The pickup’s driver, 34-year-old Adam Lancaster, stopped and waited for authorities to arrive.
Barron was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Graves said the woman suffered a broken neck and pelvis, along with a laceration on her head but was expected to survive.
Never miss a local story.
Graves also said Barron is blind in her left eye, which might have contributed to the incident. Officers, however, continued to investigate other possible causes.
