Updated: Pedestrian struck by car remains in critical condition.

LUDINGTON — A 66-year-old Ludington woman remains in critical condition at Mercy Health Hackley Hospital today after she was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Ludington Avenue and Jackson Road/Atkinson Drive Wednesday evening. Emergency crews were called to the scene at 9:27 p.m. According to Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett, a westbound Subaru passenger car traveling in the inside lane of Ludington Avenue apparently struck the woman, who was found laying in the westbound lane as well. The woman was transported by ambulance to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital and then later to Hackley in Muskegon.

“Based on evidence at the scene and a number of witness statements it was determined that the driver of the Subaru was westbound in the inside lane of Ludington Avenue and entered the intersection at Jackson Road on a green light,” Barnett said. “The victim was struck on the west side of the intersection as she was crossing Ludington Avenue northbound.” Preliminary investigation did not indicate that speed, alcohol or drug use by the driver played a part in the crash.  Further testing is being conducted to confirm that, Barnett said.

Deputies from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office assisted Ludington Police Department officers in the crash investigation.

As of 8 a.m. this morning the victim is listed in critical condition.

Responding to the scene were Ludington Police Department, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Ludington Fire Department, and Life EMS.
