Local reporter struck by car while preparing story
A local television reporter is listed in stable condition at Erie County Medical Center after being struck by a vehicle that had just been involved in a collision Monday afternoon in front of the hospital.
WKBW-TV identified the victim as Reporter Lilia Wood, 23, who was on the sidewalk preparing a story at the time of the crash.
A pickup truck apparently ignored a stop sign and pulled out from a parking lot into the path of another vehicle when it was struck on Grider Street near Maple Ridge Avenue around 3:30 p.m. Wood was on the sidewalk at the intersection when she was hit.
Police are continuing their investigation into the crash, which closed Grider Street for several hours.
