PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — A 19-year-old woman is in critical condition at Baptist Hospital after trying to cross Fairfield Drive in Pensacola Thursday night, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP says at about 8:50 p.m. the woman was crossing Fairfield Drive, just west of the New York Drive intersection, when she was hit by a car.
The driver of the vehicle tried to avoid the woman but did not see her in time, according to FHP. The driver made a U-turn and after getting help, immediately returned to the scene and flagged down a deputy.
FHP adds the woman was not in a marked crosswalk and the area was dark, with no street lighting.
