A 56-year-old Shakopee woman was transported to St. Francis Medical Center after she was struck by a red 1995 Dodge Ram while walking across a crosswalk Wednesday. The accident occurred at Eagle Creek Boulevard and Marschall Road South around 9:30 p.m. According to police records supervisor Claudia Cassman, the woman suffered minor injuries.
The driver of the truck, a 73-year-old male from Burnsville, was cited for failure to exercise due care, according to Police Chief Jeff Tate. After striking the woman, he stopped the truck, rendered aid, and called 911, Tate said.
