A Greenwich woman is recovering after being struck by a car Tuesday night.

The woman, a 59-year-old Greenwich resident, was crossing Arcadia Road at its intersection with Sound Beach Avenue when a vehicle struck her, knocking her to the ground.

She was transported by GEMS to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.

The collision occurred at approximately 7:40 pm, according to a statement released by Greenwich Police on Wednesday morning.

Tuesday’s incident is the second time in recent months a pedestrian has been hit by a car while crossing the street. On the evening of Feb 7, a man later identified as Robert Bono, 70, was hit by a car while crossing Milbank Ave. According to Greenwich Police, after being struck, Bono slid under a parked car. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

A year earlier, a pedestrian was hit by a car while crossing West Putnam Ave. That victim was a Port Chester man in his 80s who was crossing West Putnam Avenue at the intersection of Western Junior Highway when he was struck by a car and suffered serious injuries. The man later died at Greenwich Hospital.
