Norwalk police officers are investigating a pedestrian-vehicle accident which occurred Tuesday on Milan Avenue.
Roberta Vick, 33, of East Willard Avenue, Norwalk, stepped into oncoming traffic on Milan Avenue just north of Williams Avenue and was struck by a northbound vehicle, Norwalk Police Capt. David Smith said.
Vick was transported from the scene by North Central EMS to Fisher-Titus Medical Center and later flown by LifeFlight to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center.
“The extent of her injuries and condition are unknown,” Smith said Tuesday night.
A Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center spokesperson said this morning that Vick was listed in serious condition.
No charges have been filed, Smith said.
“Currently, there is no indication on fault of the driver,” Smith said. “It was dark out and she was wearing a dark, blue jacket and it was raining.”
Smith again said, according to witnesses, Vick stepped into oncoming traffic. The driver slammed on the brakes in an attempt to avoid the collision, Smith said, but Vick was struck by the vehicle.
Norwalk firefighters also responded to the scene.
