The condition of a flagger hit by a motorist early Friday afternoon at a construction site at the Benedict/Norwood Avenue split isn't life threatening, Norwalk Police Capt. David Smith said.

Kathryn L. Marchlewski, 45, of Toledo, was taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center, where she was in the emergency room Friday afternoon. Later that evening, she was not listed as a patient.

Smith said the incident is under investigation by Norwalk Police. He said Marchlewski was wearing all the required reflective gear and standing next to a cone when a vehicle turning north onto Benedict from Norwood struck her.

Smith said the driver indicated not seeing Marchlewski. The name of the driver is not being released because that person has not been charged. A report will be sent to the Norwalk Law Director's office for review, Smith said.

Marchlewski was treated at the scene by North Central EMS (NCEMS) and the Norwalk Fire Department and taken to Fisher-TItus Medical Center by NCEMS.

According to a Norwalk Fire Department report, firefighters responded to the intersection of Benedict and Summit Street at 12:07 p.m., assisted with patient care and loading and returned to the station at 12:25.

Marchlewski works for North Royalton-based Area Wide Protective, dubbed "America's Traffic Control Leader" on its website.
