Car-pedestrian crash in Battle Creek kills woman, injures man


BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- A young woman is dead and a young man in critical condition after they were struck by a driver who police say had been drinking Saturday night in Battle Creek.

The 22-year-old woman and 24-year-old man were walking along Columbia Avenue near Riverside at about 11:30 Saturday night when they were struck by a 57-year-old woman headed eastbound in a red pick-up truck.

Police are saying alcohol appears to have been a factor and arrested the driver.

The woman was pronounced dead at Bronson Battle Creek.

The man is being treated for multiple serious injuries at a Kalamazoo Hospital.
