Medics took a 37-year-old Nevada woman to Stanford Hospital with "severe injuries" on Saturday night (Oct. 29) after she was struck by a 2004 Honda Pilot SUV at about 11:10 p.m. while attempting to walk across Middlefield Road about 100 feet north of Fair Oaks Lane in Atherton, according to Atherton police.
Driving the Honda was a 50-year-old woman from Redwood City, Sgt. Anthony Kockler of the Atherton Police Department said.
The woman injured was accompanied while crossing the street, but the person walking with her was not injured, Sgt. Kockler said. There were a couple of other witnesses, he said.
Overhead views of the area show no crosswalks north of Fair Oaks Lane until Middlefield and Eighth Avenue. The accident happened where there was no crosswalk, Sgt. Kockler said. Darkness was probably a factor, he said.
The investigation is ongoing.
