Pedestrian injuries 'minor' in downtown accident

A 35-year-old Menlo Park woman in a crosswalk near the corner of Santa Cruz Avenue and Curtis Street was taken to Stanford Hospital on Saturday, April 18, for abrasions and a "complaint of pain" after being struck by a 2009 silver Kia Spectra heading east on Santa Cruz at about 4:40 p.m., police said.

A preliminary report does not mention injuries to the driver, a 66-year-old woman from Ames, Iowa, said Menlo Park Police Department spokeswoman Nicole Acker. A sergeant involved with the case described the pedestrian's injuries as "minor," Ms. Acker said.

Police are not releasing any names, in keeping with department policy for accidents in which there are, as yet, no criminal charges, Ms. Acker said. Charges do not appear likely, she added.
