Woman hit by van in Dayton

Dayton Police investigate a pedestrian strike at South Main and Washington Streets.

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton Police are investigating after a woman was hit by a vehicle on Tuesday morning.

An officer on patrol found the woman in the street at the intersection of South Main and Washington Streets.

According to police, the woman is in her sixties. A sergeant on-scene says multiple witnesses saw the woman walking across the street when she had a “do not walk” sign.

The driver of a silver van was going westbound on Washington St. before hitting the woman.

A RTA bus was traveling eastbound on Washington St. and witnessed the accident.

The woman was taken to Miami Valley Hospital. Police don’t have an updated condition, but did say she was “alert and talking”.

Washington Street was closed from Patterson to Jefferson as police investigated the crash. That street has since reopened. Main Street was not closed due to the accident.

We have a crew at the scene and we’ll provide updates as they become available.
