A 42 year old Langley woman who was hit by a pick up truck in a marked crosswalk on 200 Street last Wednesday is still in critical condition in hospital, said police.

Her condition hadn't improved as of Tuesday, said police spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing so it isn't known at this time whether the driver that hit the woman will be charged or not.

The woman was struck while she was crossing the busy intersection of 200 Street and 53 Avenue just before school was being let out for at the neighbouring Nicomekl Elementary. She suffered head injuries.

Comments on the story indicate that the marked crosswalk can be dangerous with drivers not paying attention or driving carelessly and with speed.
