The incident occurred at approximately 8:20 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27 at the intersection of Veterans Memorial Parkway and Goldstream Avenue in Langford. According to a media release, the driver came to a red light and was about to make a right turn onto Veterans Memorial Parkway but hit a woman in the leg, causing her to hit the hood of the car.
