A woman police described as elderly was hit by a car Saturday, Nov. 5 at approximately 7:15 p.m. as she crossed the intersection of Northwest Highway and Benton Street.
She was transported to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge where she remains. Her condition has not been released by fire department officials.
Palatine Police Sgt. Tim Sharkey said investigators have concluded alcohol was not a factor in the incident. The driver has not been cited in the crash.
The Palatine resident was crossing Northwest Highway at Benton Street when she was hit by the sedan, Sharkey said.
The driver, whose name is not being released by police, was travelling westbound at the time of the incident.
Sharkey said it was pitch dark at the time of the accident, which may have been a factor.
