A pedestrian was hit crossing Broadway early this evening and has been rushed to hospital.
At least a half-dozen cruisers are still on the scene at Broadway and Donald Street. Motorists should avoid the area as police have blocked off the street and traffic is backed up.
The accident occurred at about 5 p.m. and one witness, who heard the crash from his nearby apartment, said the woman who was hit appeared badly injured. The driver, who initially drove off, was flagged down by several witnesses and stopped a short distance up the block.
