Woman Hit by Car on Stadium Blvd. Was Walking in Street
COLUMBIA - A 66-year-old woman is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at University Hospital Friday morning after she was hit by a car Thursday evening.
The woman, identified as Anna Coulibaly, was walking with groceries and a cart on the outer lane of Stadium Blvd. southbound when she was hit by the driver of a car who had seen her at the last moment, according to police.
A police spokesperson said that sidewalks on southbound Stadium, including near the intersection with Bernadette Dr., are currently undergoing construction, and that it wasn't clear if that was why Coulibaly had been walking in the road.
Coulibaly was taken by ambulance to University Hospital with several non-life-threatening abrasions at the time, and was in ICU as of 11 a.m. Friday.
