A ve­hi­cle struck a pedes­trian on Route 222 in Fleet­wood on Feb. 6.

Fleet­wood Bor­ough Po­lice re­port that at 3:47 p.m. on Feb. 6, pedes­trian Charles Allen, 24, Bish­opvill, SC, was at­tempt­ing to walk across Route 222, be­tween Farm­ers Drive and Mose­lem Springs Road, to en­ter a con­ve­nient store. Allen walked in front of north­bound traf­fic, which was stopped for a red traf­fic sig­nal, and then di­rectly into the path of a ve­hi­cle driven by Wendy Drexel, 58, Fleet­wood.

Po­lice re­port that Drexel was driv­ing north­bound at a slow rate of speed in the cen­ter turn lane in prepa­ra­tion to make a left-hand turn when Allen walked into her path of travel.

Allen stated he had leg pain and was eval­u­ated by Fleet­wood EMS on scene. Allen re­fused trans­port and med­i­cal treat­ment.

Drexel was not in­jured as a re­sult of the ac­ci­dent. Her ve­hi­cle had mi­nor dam­age and was driven from the scene.

The road­way was not closed and traf­fic did not have to be de­toured. This in­ci­dent is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
