@stu – story says between ARB and HPB. There isn’t a sidewalk there in either direction. Shoulders through there in either direction are virtually nonexistent. If person was headed west – towards HPB, that ramp does not connect to sidewalk (sidewalk is only on down-river side of the bridge).

Unfortunately I have seen a fair amount of people walking in this area – and even people walking up that ramp and one guy walking along the up-river side bridge deck.

Obviously I hope the person is ok, but the particulars of this area makes me feel a bit surprised this doesn’t happen more often, unfortunately.

A woman walking across Penn Avenue at Linden “outside of the crosswalk” was struck by a vehicle heading toward Fifth Avenue, police said. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Driver stopped. No word who had the right of way, or if the car was speeding.

Mentioned in the comments on the Facebook post about Austin Fike’s memorial dinner. Unfortunately I have no further details. The comment was posted just a few minutes before I copied it here.

‘Frances Withane <span dir=”ltr”><span class=”_3l3x”>I heard about this the same day I saw a pedestrian in a crosswalk be hit by a car, roll several times and fly into the air. (I was a witness and gave a statement.)'</span></span>

I believe that a call to PennDOT has been made about this intersection. This is the second person to get hit there.
