PORT TOWNSEND — A Port Townsend woman was in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Wednesday afternoon after being struck by a truck while she was in a crosswalk on Monday night.
Anita Durgan, 57, was walking in an illuminated crosswalk near QFC and First Federal bank in Port Townsend at 5:13 p.m. Monday when an truck traveling into the city struck her, said Troy Surber, interim Port Townsend police chief.
Durgan was transported to Jefferson Healthcare hospital initially with hip and leg injuries and was in stable condition at the time of the airlift.
Monday night, she was admitted to the intensive care unit. Wednesday afternoon, she was transferred out and was in satisfactory condition, said Susan Gregg, Harborview spokesperson.
Jefferson County resident Charles Long, 19, reportedly was watching a bicyclist while driving when it was dark, when he struck Durgan — who was wearing dark clothing — in the crosswalk, Surber said.
Long stayed with Durgan and rendered aid while waiting for authorities to arrive, Surber said.
Long was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian, Surber said.
