An elderly Richland woman was hospitalized early Friday after she was hit by a motorcycle.
Robert D. Turner, 35, was headed west on Van Giesen Street on a Harley Davidson at 6:45 a.m. when he hit Laverne Weissenfe in the road.
Weissenfe, 85, was not in a crosswalk and it was still dark out, police said. Speed did not appear to be an issue, said Richland police.
Weissenfe had injuries to her head, face and chest and was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland.
Turner suffered minor injuries.
