WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A woman was walking on the white line on the north side of Pine Grove Drive near Masonboro Loop Road when she was struck by a small pickup truck traveling west.

The incident happened around 7:30 am on Thursday.

The pedestrian landed in the ditch after the impact. She was treated at New Hanover Regional Medical Center for a broken leg, head injury and possible internal injuries. She had surgery but doctors say she will recover.

The driver of the pick-up was a 17-year-old male. He stayed at the scene.

His windshield was partially iced over, which may have caused limited visibility.

Authorities have not filed any charges at this time and the investigation is still open.
