A 37-year-old Pleasanton woman was hit by a truck at Stoneridge Drive and Hopyard Road around 8 p.m. last night, according to police.
The victim is said to have sustained serious injuries to her leg and was transported to Eden Trauma Center in Castro Valley.
Reports said a 40-year-old woman was driving a Toyota Rav 4 westbound on Stoneridge Drive, when she allegedly hit the woman who was reportedly in the crosswalk. While the cause is yet to be determined, police have ruled out alcohol or drugs as a factor.
Lt. Tom Fenner said the investigation is still on going and couldn't confirm whereabouts in the crosswalk the woman was walking.
"This is another example, although the investigation is not complete, that there's something going on with pedestrians and cars," he said. "And we're not sure why."
Last week a 9-year-old bicyclist was hit on his way to school and Fenner said another bicyclist faces minor injuries from recently being hit by a vehicle. A woman run over by a car at Old Santa Rita Road and Rosewood Drive was killed July 28. There were also two collisions on First Street near downtown in the past few months.
Fenner said he thought there were a couple witnesses to Thursday night's collision, but they are encouraging any others to come forward.
While it is a major intersection, Fenner believes that Stoneridge Drive and Hoypard Road has seen few collisions in the past, considering the high volume of traffic.
