A Vancouver woman was in satisfactory condition Thursday night, several hours after getting hit by a car in a crosswalk.
The incident happened at about 12:40 p.m. in a new intersection on the 4700 block of 78th Street in Vancouver. Roberta Koffler, 46, was crossing a five-lane section of the street at a crosswalk when a car hit her, leaving Koffler with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Koffler was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. Hospital staff reported that she was doing much better in the evening.
Sgt. Duncan Hoss, a spokesman for the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, said Koffler had been crossing a dangerous intersection that does not yet have any walking signs.
“That intersection isn’t illuminated yet,” Hoss said. “It’s still too new.”
The incident remains under investigation. No drugs or alcohol were involved, Hoss said. He added that the driver of the car, 87-year-old June Serviss from Vancouver, will not face any criminal charges from the crash.
