EL PASO TEXAS-On 12-7-12 at approximately 6:00 PM, Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the intersection of FM259 and Doniphan Dr., Canutillo, TX, in reference to a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian.
Upon arrival Deputies saw a male lying on the ground and made contact with the driver of a 2004 Dodge Stratus who remained on scene. A preliminary investigation revealed the driver of the Stratus was traveling northbound on Doniphan Dr. when it struck a male pedestrian crossing Doniphan Dr. The pedestrian, a 46 year old male, was transported by ambulance to a local area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Stratus was the sole occupant of the vehicle. The driver claims she did not see the man crossing the road as she proceeded through the intersection. The investigation continues.
