At approximately 2:00 pm in the afternoon, an elderly woman was reportedly crossing outside a crosswalk along Standiford Avenue in the vicinity of Tully Road. One vehicle stopped for the elderly woman to allow her to cross while a second driver of a Hyundai Sonata failed to stop in time and crashed into her.
