UPDATE: Woman and Child Hit By Car Were Not in Crosswalk

A woman and child sustained non-life threatening injuries after a car struck them while they were crossing Main Street Wednesday afternoon.

Juanita Mauricia Lewis, 35, and a 6-year-old boy, both of the 12000 block of Reisterstown Road in Reisterstown, were crossing the street where there was no crosswalk when Reisterstown resident John Wayne Sloan, age 78, was making a left turn out of 750 Main Street to head northbound in his 2002 Toyota Prius, according to Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher. Police were called to the intersection of Main Street and Caraway Road, where the pedestrians were struck, at 4:32 p.m.

“The driver of the vehicle said he looked both ways and did not see anyone when he pulled out onto Main Street,” Rogers-Feher said. “The two pedestrians were not in the crosswalk when they crossed into the street and there were no pedestrian signals at that intersection.”

Lewis and the child were transported to Sinai Hospital. They have the same address, but it is not clear if they are related, Rogers-Feher said. No citations had been issued to the driver.
