An elderly woman suffered severe head injuries and is in critical condition after she was hit by a car Wednesday morning as she crossed the street against a green light, authorities said.
The woman, whom police declined to identify, is a 76-year-old volunteer at the Fairview Developmental Center. Costa Mesa traffic officers said she was crossing the street next to the center, at Harbor Boulevard and Fair Drive, against green light at about 7:15 a.m. when a car southbound on Harbor Boulevard hit her, Sgt. Victor Bakkila said.
She was walking across Fair Drive toward the center when a four-door sedan in the middle lane hit her, police said. Fire officials said she suffered a serious head wound.
