A woman, 64, received multiple fractures after she was hit by a car Tuesday evening in a residential area in Walnut Grove, according to Clark County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Duncan Hoss.

Around 7 p.m., the woman was walking north on Northeast 72nd Avenue and started to turn onto Northeast 55th Street. The sun obscured her view, so she didn’t see a pickup that was pulling out of 55th onto 72nd.

The woman was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with fractured arms and legs, and had a possible head injury.

Names were not released.
