Woman hit by van in critical condition

BEAUMONT - by Lauren Huet

A woman is in critical condition after being hit by a van at around 10:23 this morning. Police say the woman stepped into the road as the van turned left onto Concord from Delaware. Officers say the driver of the van had a green light. Lindsay Morgan was driving behind the van when it turned and struck the woman.

"I was behind the van, and we got a green arrow to turn left," said Morgan. "And I saw the three people that were on the corner, and all the sudden one of them just went. And I could tell that the other two tried to stop her, but she just went and he just couldn't stop I guess."

Keith Johnson was sitting on a truck outside of the automotive store where he works when he saw the accident.

"The people that she was with, they was calling her and telling her, 'hey, stop! Stop! Stop!' But she kept on going," said Johnson.

"I mean honestly I was in shock when it first happened," said Morgan. "I didn't even really process that I had just seen that, because I never thought that was something I would witness."

Johnson and Morgan say the driver jumped out of the van, checked on the woman, and called 9-1-1.

"People started swarming, honestly, from every different direction," said Morgan. "I got out of my car and they were just trying to keep her sister from touching her because she was in critical condition."

Johnson says he and others tried to keep the woman's sister from moving her.

"Everybody kept trying to calm her down. She was jumping up like, 'why did you do this to my sister?' And we was like, 'hey, it was an accident.'"

An accident that happened in a split-second. An intersection of lives forever changed.
