Jaywalking pedestrian struck and injured on Powell Blvd
After dark, on Wednesday evening, October 14, a westbound car on S.E. Powell Boulevard hit a pedestrian who had dodged into traffic, east of 22nd Avenue.
Central Precinct officers were first to the incident at 7:26 p.m., as Brooklyn's "Rescue 23" fire rig responded from twelve blocks away, and finally an ambulance pulled up as well.
PPB officers were focusing their investigation on the northwest corner of the intersection, while paramedics treated the injured pedestrian, who eventually left in the ambulance.
"The person struck was not in a crosswalk, and the driver did not see them enter the road," PPB Public Information Officer Derek Carmon told THE BEE, after reviewing the official report.
"The pedestrian had minor injuries, and was transported to an area hospital for evaluation," stated Carmon. "The driver stayed, and cooperated with the investigation; no citations were issued."
