A Stamford woman is fighting for her life after she was hit by a car over the weekend.
Police say 69-year-old Benita Murralles is listed in critical but stable condition at the intensive care unit at Stamford Hospital. Officials say her family is hopeful she will pull through. 
Police say Murralles was crossing Grove Street Saturday afternoon when a 17-year-old male driver struck her. They say she suffered life-threatening injuries.
Stamford resident Cesar Ursulino, who shot video of the scene, says the teen was in shock after the incident.
"He was very upset about it. He mentioned to me that he had a green light and she crossed the street and he didn't have time to stop," Ursulino says. "I told him, 'You're 17 and you need to call your parents. You may have killed somebody.'"
Police have not said whether the driver has been cooperative or whether he may have been under the influence at the time of the incident, but say he has not yet been charged.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Stamford police.
