A female pedestrian struck by a vehicle Thursday morning on East Montague Avenue was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The woman was crossing the street shortly before 8 a.m. at at the intersection of East Montague Avenue and Mixson Avenue when a female driver who was exiting an empty parking lot pulled out without looking and struck her, according to North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor.

The pedestrian was not crossing the street at a crosswalk, police say.

No citations were issued, but both were found to be contributing to the accident, Pryor said.
