Pedestrian hit by vehicle outside Bean’s Cafe

Published: Updated:





Icy road conditions contributed to a driver hitting a pedestrian outside of Bean’s Cafe Monday morning.


According to the Anchorage Police Department, around 9:13 Monday morning police received a call from a passerby that a pedestrian had been hit near Brother Francis Shelter downtown.


A Toyota 4Runner, driven by a 41-year-old man, was stopped at the red light at Third Avenue and Post Road. After the light turned green, the driver of the SUV accelerated. Due to icy conditions he lost control, turned sideways, and slid up onto the sidewalk where the vehicle hit a pedestrian and a utility pole.


APD said the victim, a 61-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries that were not life threatening. The driver stayed on scene and was cooperative with police.


KTVA was told the woman is in stable condition and that drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the crash.


No citations have been issued at this time. Police have requested a sand truck respond to the area.
