The incident happened after 9:00 p.m. when a woman jaywalked. Moreover, it happened near Ashlan and Blackstone Avenues.

The car struck the woman and the driver stopped to report to 911.
When the first responders arrived, they transported the woman to the hospital. She sustained moderate but non-life-threatening injuries.
