Woman struck by vehicle in parking lot, critically hurt

FWPD investigates after a woman was struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of Walmart on Lima Road on Dec. 28, 2016.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A woman was critically hurt after being struck by a van in a Fort Wayne Walmart parking lot Wednesday morning.

Police were called to the store located at 10105 Lima Road at around 10:45 a.m.

The woman, who police said is 65-years-old, was taken to a hospital in serious condition, but was downgraded to critical condition by hospital staff.

A NewsChannel 15 reporter on the scene has learned from police that a woman who was driving the van with two children inside apparently did not see the victim. No one in the van was injured and police have no indication that drugs or alcohol is involved. It’s too early in the investigation for authorities to determine if any chages will be filed.

Emergency responders were out front of the store and crime scene tape sectioned off an area in front of the Home and Pharmacy entrance.
