GREECE, N.Y. (WROC) — The Greece Police Department is investigating an accident on Monday morning after a woman was struck by a vehicle on Latta Road.
Greece Police Sgt. Jared Rene says first responders arrived at the scene at the 2700 block of Latta Road shortly after 6 a.m. following reports of a pedestrian struck.
The middle-aged female who was struck was taken to an area hospital shortly thereafter with critical injuries.
Latta Road from Long Pond Road to Kinmont Drive is closed for the next couple hours as officials investigate.
Officials say one vehicle was involved.
“It’s just after 6 a.m., it’s dark out this time of year,” Sgt. Rene said. “I don’t know if visibility was an issue. There was another vehicle in the area who slowed for the woman crossing, and I don’t think the other driver saw her.”
Sgt. Rene said there is no crosswalk in the area where the injured woman was trying to cross. Sgt. Rene says it appears she may have been jogging or exercising when she was struck.
