A 44-year-old woman has been injured in a pedestrian accident that occurred in Kansas City on Saturday.

According to police officials, the hearing impaired woman was walking across the street with her husband when she was struck by a southbound van.

It was raining at the time and the woman was walking next to parked cars which prevented her from seeing the van. The van’s driver also did not see her. Her injuries were considered life-threatening and she is still currently in critical condition.

Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.
