A vehicle struck and injured a pedestrian who walked into the northbound lane of M Street Southeast on Thursday night, Auburn Police said.

Police received a call of a collision around 9 p.m. A group of people, unknown how many, was walking southbound on M Street Southeast when a woman in her mid-20s stumbled into the northbound lanes between 9th and 12th Street SE, police said.

A Honda traveling northbound attempted to avoid colliding with the woman by swerving to the left and into the southbound lane, but the pedestrian continued to walk directly in front of the vehicle, police reported. The woman was struck by the front end of the vehicle, then hit its windshield.

Police, fire and medics responded. The woman was transported to Harborview Medical Center.

Her injuries are not life threatening, according to first responders. There were no other injuries reported.
