A woman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle avoiding another vehicle that ran a red light Tuesday morning.
According to officials, a gray Volvo ran a red light at the intersection of Third and Castle Streets which caused another vehicle to swerve to try and miss it.
The second vehicle hit a pedestrian, 55-year-old Lisa Dietz of Hickory, who was in the cross walk. Dietz was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center with a serious head injury.
Dietz is currently in critical condition.
Charges are pending against the driver of the gray Volvo.
