I, unfortunately was a witness, she wasn't crossing rio rd. She was crossing one of the side roads off rio e. Right near bank of america.

I wasn't there so I didn't see it, but I can only imagine the same scenario that I witness all of the time. Pedestrian's walk IN FRONT of autos instead of behind. They should NEVER do that, and NEVER assume the driver sees you. Most times, they don't and wammo, you're hit. Thoughts are with the woman and hope she has a full recovery.

I hope she is okay! Maybe that van was going to fast or just not paying attention.
