Woman on Life Support After Being Struck by Vehicle

Posted: Updated:
 Sparks Police are investigating a traffic accident involving a pedestrian at 9th and C Street in Sparks.  

The incident occurred just after 3:00 a.m.  When police arrived, they found a woman unresponsive in the street, east of the intersection.  

Police say it appears the woman was crossing the street in a crosswalk when she was struck.  The driver says he did not see the woman before hitting her.

The victim, a 49-year-old resident of Sparks, was transported to Renown with serious head injuries, where she is currently on life support.  Police say alcohol does not appear to be a factor, and it is too early in the investigation to know if any charges will be issued.
