ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police have issued a summons to a New Hampshire woman who was struck by a car after she started walking across a street against a crosswalk signal.

Police said 34-year-old Angela Davis, of Rochester, started walking at about 4:45 a.m. Friday. A driver had just started from a stop light and didn’t see Davis, who was wearing a camouflage top and blue jeans, or her companion, until they were in her lane. The driver tried to swerve to avoid them, but struck Davis with her mirror. Davis fell and complained of elbow and ankle pain.

Police said Davis was issued a summons for a pedestrian violation for crossing against the signal.

Police said it’s important to wear light-colored or reflective clothing when it’s dark, and obey crosswalk signals.
