Report says an oncoming vehicle struck a 36-year-old woman on Southwest 22nd Street near Southwest 3rd Avenue causing her to suffer severe injuries.
A statement from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department said a female victim was hit by an oncoming vehicle near the intersection at Southwest 3rd Avenue.
The woman sustained life-threatening injuries and paramedics immediately transported her to a nearby hospital, according to the official. Police shut down Southwest 22nd Street for almost an hour as they worked on the scene; however, the roadway has since reopened.
The victim attempted to cross Southwest 22nd Street when a Subaru hatchback traveling at a low speed suddenly crashed into her. The 27-year-old driver remained at the scene of the accident and assisted law enforcement officials with their investigation.
The preliminary investigation report is almost concluded and the report will be made public soon.
