Woman, 78, gravely hurt crossing at 4-way stop intersection

Police are continuing to sort out an accident on Friday at Verobeach Blvd at Indrio Rd. when a 78-year-old woman was crossing the quiet intersection northwest of Weston Rd. and Sheppard Ave. It is a four-way stop and the photo above shows the view of the driver, 44, of a new Dodge Ram pickup truck as he headed south. He made a left hand turn and hit the woman as she tried to cross. The police report does not say whether she had her back to the truck or might possibly have been going the other way (north) and seen it coming. But she suffered life threatening injuries in this broad daylight occurrence. It was reported at 8.40 a.m.
