(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Deputies responded to a report of a vehicle striking a person who was crossing the street. A woman was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Bob Ray, Washington County Sheriff's Office.

He says around 4:19 p.m., Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a vehicle that struck a woman who was crossing SW Scholls Ferry Road close to SW Stephen Lane in the community of Raleigh Hills. SW Scholls Ferry Road is divided into a two lane road with a speed limit of 30 MPH.

Ray says deputies found 86-year old Marjorie Hubbard from Raleigh Hills on the street after being struck by a vehicle.

"Witnesses told deputies that Ms. Hubbard was walking across SW Scholls Ferry Road when she was struck by a passing vehicle. There is no crosswalk or intersection at that location."

She was hit by a 2007 Mercedes Benz that was driven by 50-year-old Li Dai from West Linn.

"The investigation revealed that Ms. Dai was driving westbound on SW Scholls Ferry Road and was facing the setting sun and failed to see Ms. Hubbard. It appears Ms. Dai was driving about 30 MPH at the time of the impact."

Ray says Ms. Hubbard was transported by ambulance to OHSU Hospital and is listed in critical condition with multiple broken bones. She is expected to survive her injuries.

SW Scholls Ferry Road westbound was closed for a half hour while Sheriff's Deputies investigated the incident. No citations have been issued.

Ray says the Washington County Sheriff's Office would like to remind drivers to slow down and be extra cautious while driving in congested areas.

Pedestrians are encouraged to use crosswalks, wear reflective clothing and carry a light to help make them more visible to vehicles.

She was NOT hit by a 2007 Mercedes Benz that was driven by 50-year-old Li Dai from West Linn. Ms Dai saw a person fall and stopped car and call 911 to save her, because there is no other people at that moment around. It's impossible to have witness there otherwise those witnesses should call 911 before Li Dai does. Li Dai saved her and helped to transfer her to OHSU. Li Dai also helped Sheriff's Deputies investigation. Insurance company has also investigated the incident and fund the Mercedes Li Dai drove didn't touch Ms. Hubbard because there is no even a little mark of hit on the Mercedes body. This news report miss lead readers. The lady was 86 and could fall by any reason, she was lucky to have someone saved her at earliest time.
