Police: Anderson Univ. student hit by van at crosswalk

ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Police said an Anderson University student was crossing a street and hit by a vehicle Monday night, suffering minor injuries.

Anderson Police said they responded to a crosswalk near the Boulevard on the school's campus where they found a pedestrian lying on the ground and a minivan on the side of the road.

The officer's incident report said the victim and several others were crossing at the well-lit crosswalk when the van failed to yield to them, hitting one of the pedestrians.

The driver of the van, Dominique Carson, 26, told officers that she was not paying attention to the roadway because she was fussing at her kids in the backseat. The report said Carson had a suspended license from 2006 in Georgia and an active arrest warrant, but they would not extradite.

Police said Carson's mother came to get the van and her children and she was taken to the city detention center.

Carson was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian and no South Carolina drivers license.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries to her hands and hip, according to the report.
