OGDEN — A woman is in critical condition after being hit by a car Wednesday evening at 24th Street and Harrison Boulevard.

The woman, 67, was walking eastbound across 24th Street in the intersection’s south crosswalk when she was hit just after 5:45 p.m.

A 70-year-old woman was turning left to head southbound on Harrison Boulevard when she hit the pedestrian, Ogden Police Lt. Steve Zaccardi told the Standard-Examiner.

The driver of the car reportedly yielded to a vehicle at the intersection before making her left turn but didn't notice the pedestrian in time.
