MODESTO —

An elderly woman was taken to a local hospital after being struck by a car in a multi-vehicle collision this afternoon.

Around 1 p.m. a male driver was pulling out of a Burger King parking lot on Oakdale Road south of Orangeburg Ave. As he pulled onto Oakdale road, he sideswiped another car traveling northbound on the road.

The hit car lost control and slid onto the sidewalk, striking an elderly female who was walking on the sidewalk. The car also struck a MID power pole, shearing it off.
