PORT ANGELES — One person was transported to Olympic Medical Center after a vehicle hit a pedestrian Tuesday afternoon.

Cpl. Clay Rife of the Port Angeles Police Department said a vehicle driven by Theresa Whitney was turning north from First Street onto Race Street at 2:49 p.m. and she didn’t see the pedestrian.

Rife did not provide the name of the pedestrian. He said he didn’t know how serious the pedestrian’s injuries were.

Whitney had a green light, he said.

The roadway was cleared shortly after the pedestrian was hit.

Rife added that Whitney would be cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
