Car/Pedestrian Incident in Sturgeon Bay

There was an incident involving a car and pedestrian in Sturgeon Bay Saturday evening. At just about 7:15 pm, a Sturgeon Bay police officer was driving west on Jefferson Street and observed a female pedestrian crossing west to east on the south side of the intersection with 7th Ave. At that time, a 73 year-old Sturgeon Bay woman was northbound on 7th Ave in her Chevrolet Cruze. She stopped at the stop sign and then turned east onto Jefferson Street while the pedestrian was in the crosswalk. The pedestrian stuck her arm out to push away from the vehicle which crossed her path. The officer then performed a traffic stop during which the driver stated that she did not see anyone in the crosswalk. The officer then spoke with the pedestrian who had already called into dispatch to report being struck by the vehicle and having a wrist injury. The officer observed no physical signs of injury or swelling and asked if he could cancel the ambulance call, but the pedestrian still requested ambulance transport to the hospital for her wrist. The officer later issued a citation to the Sturgeon Bay woman driver for failure to yield to a pedestrian. It was later learned that pedestrian has no injury.
