NORWALK - Police in Norwalk say a woman who was struck by a vehicle Friday night is facing charges, not the man who hit her.

The incident occurred at the corner of Van Buren Avenue and Maple Street at around 11 p.m.

Officials say the 27-year-old Stamford woman had just exited a bus when the man struck her while making a right turn. They say she was wearing dark-colored clothing at the time.

News 12 is told the woman was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. She is being charged with unsafe use of highways.
