A medical crew with St. Peter’s Hospital transported a woman for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries after she was struck by a car in the Safeway parking lot Wednesday afternoon.
The woman, whose name has not been released, was walking with her grocery cart in the lot when a vehicle backing up hit her, according to Randy Ranalli, an officer with the Helena Police Department.
Ranalli said the injuries did not appear to be serious and the woman was conscious when authorities arrived. Police, firefighters and medical personnel were called to the store at 611 N. Montana Ave. just before 4 p.m.
Officers questioned the middle-aged man who was driving the Subaru Outback that struck the woman. The incident remains under investigation. No citations were immediately issued.
