St. Cloud Woman Hit by Car While Crossing Crosswalk
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud woman is hurt after being hit by a car as she was walking across a crosswalk.
The incident happened shortly before 8:00 a.m. Friday at the intersection of 5th Avenue and 7th Street South in St. Cloud.
St. Cloud Police Sergeant Jason Burke says 74-year-old John Lohman of St. Cloud was driving north on 5th Avenue South when he struck 63-year-old Lou Krueger of St. Cloud, as she was crossing the 5th Avenue South crosswalk.
Krueger was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Lohman was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
Burke says an ice covered windshield may have been a factor in the incident.
