A Kennewick woman was hurt after being hit by a car in a crosswalk at dusk Wednesday.

The woman was crossing South Union Street in front of the main branch of the Mid-Columbia Libraries shortly before 5 p.m., Kennewick police said. The man driving the car said he didn’t see her.

The woman was conscious and alert when police arrived, Officer Craig Hanson said Wednesday night. She was taken to Trios Southridge Hospital.

It did not appear that the driver was drunk or on drugs, Hanson said.

This is the second early-evening pedestrian accident in as many days in the Tri-Cities since daylight saving time ended.

Two boys were hit in Richland at the intersection of Jadwin Avenue and Wilson Street at about the same time on Tuesday.
