PORT ANGELES — A transient Port Angeles woman was in critical condition Thursday afternoon after being hit by a vehicle on the 200 block of South Lincoln Street in Port Angeles on Wednesday night, Port Angeles police said.
Doneen Penn, 56, was in the southbound lane of South Lincoln Street when she was struck by a Toyota Corolla at about 10:36 p.m. Wednesday, said Port Angeles Police Officer Whitney Fairbanks.
Penn was originally transported to Olympic Medical Center but was then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition, according to Fairbanks.
The Toyota was driven by Robert Case, 29, of Port Angeles, Fairbanks said.
She said no charges are expected against Case because there is no reason to believe a crime was committed.
Penn was in the road and not in a crosswalk, she said.
“We don’t know the reason for [him] being in the road,” she said.
Case cooperated with officers, and drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the accident, Fairbanks said.
