ECHO PARK — A woman was being treated for a head injury tonight after police said she ran into the street and was struck by a restaurant delivery car, prompting a three-hour street closure as officers conducted an investigation.
Witnesses said the woman had been yelling at a man across the street for several minutes at the corner of Montana Street and Lake Shore Avenue when she ran into the street and was hit by a Rodeo Mexican Grill delivery vehicle that was turning at the intersection at about 6 p.m., said LAPD Officer Jason Cho. The woman suffered a head injury and was bleeding after hitting the pavement, Cho said. He did not have any information on her medical condition.
It did not appear that the driver, who had not been speeding or drinking, was at fault, based on eye witness accounts and a preliminary investigation, Cho said.
A two-block stretch of Montana Street was reopened to traffic at about 9 p.m.
