Pedestrian struck in Strasburg

By Katie Demeria

A 77-year-old woman was struck in a BB&T parking lot in Strasburg Friday morning.

The driver, a 71-year-old female, was backing out of her spot at the 115 West King Street building when she struck the victim, Lieutenant Jason Ford of the Strasburg Police Department said.

Kimberly Brill and her son Chris Brill witnessed the hit.

"I saw the woman walking, and when the car started backing out I started beeping my horn, but she kept going," Kimberly Brill said.

She added that the driver, unaware of the hit, kept driving before another car blocked the lot's exit.

Chris Brill, an intermediate medic with the Strasburg Volunteer Rescue Squad, was able to attend the victim immediately after she fell to the ground.

"She seemed okay, but she had a recent surgery on her knee," he said.

The Strasburg Rescue Squad arrived just after 11 a.m. The victim was awake and talking, but unable to walk.

The driver said that she was very remorseful on the scene, adding that she would be permanently giving her car keys to her daughter.

"No charges will be pressed," Ford said.
