Elderly Woman Struck by Car in Multi-Vehicle Collision
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.
The woman suffered major injuries and was taken to a local hospital as a result.
MID also arrived at the scene to repair the pole.
All of Oakdale Road between Orangeburg Ave. and Wylie Dr. was shut down. Police say the road will continue to be shut down for the next three to four hours.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
