BURLINGTON, N.C. (WGHP) — A 94-year-old woman was hit by two cars in Burlington this weekend.
Burlington Police Department says they responded to the intersection of Sharpe Road and Lakeside Avenue on a call about a pedestrian, later identified as 94-year-old Ethel Murray, being struck by two different cars on Sunday, just after 2:30 p.m.
Murray has serious injuries but is in stable condition.
Witnesses say the victim was in the intersection when she was hit by two cars traveling south on Lakeside Avenue.
One was described as a newer model grey Honda Civic with a loud exhaust and tinted window. The second car was described as an older model black Mitsubishi Lancer with a red spoiler.
“We’re on Sharpe Road…and Lakeside Avenue at the four-way stop sign. There’s a lady who has possibly been hit by a car,” a 911 caller said.
Murray was cared for by bystanders and a nurse who stopped to help before paramedics arrived on the scene to deliver critical care.
Neighbor Wendy Morrow said she rarely sees Murray leave her porch.
“She’s mostly with her son all the time when she comes outside that gate. I said ‘believe me. If I was here and saw her go down that road, I would have gone behind her and asked her where she was going and everything and brought her back home. But I wasn’t here,” Morrow said.
She wants the two drivers who left the 94-year-old lying in the middle of the road to be held accountable.
