A woman was injured Sunday night when she was struck by a car as she was walking along Old Smithville Highway near the fairgrounds.
The victim, Tammy Satterfield, 47, was transported to River Park Hospital by the Warren County Emergency Ambulance Service for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries after she was knocked to the ground by the vehicle.
According to sheriff’s department reports, the accident happened around 7 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Old Smithville Highway and Fairgrounds Road. Interviews of witnesses revealed Satterfield was walking along the road with two friends, heading southbound with her back to traffic, when she was struck from behind by a 1995 Pontiac driven by Curtis V. Hughes, 71.
Hughes told police he saw three people walking beside the road just before striking the victim. Hughes noted there was also a car coming toward him in the other direction as he hit the woman.
The victim said she was spun around by the impact and was thrown to the ground. She told deputies she was walking along the edge of the grass near the pavement since there was little shoulder.
No charges have been filed against Mr. Hughes.
