Pedestrian injured in Dawn Beach. 


A woman pedestrian is in critical condition after being struck by car and run over by a car on the morning of November 14. She sustained injuries to her shoulder, ribs, and wounds to her head.


Police Central Dispatch received the report of a collision on Melford Hazel Road, near the entrance to Dawn Beach Estate.


At the scene, police determined that the driver of the white Hyundai i10 that hit the pedestrian lost control while descending the steep hill due to the wet road surface. This led to the vehicle hitting and running over a pedestrian.


Bystanders tipped the vehicle onto its right side to free the pinned woman.


Ambulance personnel stabilized the victim at the scene and rushed her to St. Maarten Medical Center. She remains in critical condition.


The driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries. She was also treated at the scene.


The police traffic department is investigating this serious incident.
