A woman is in the hospital in critical condition after being hit by a car Wednesday night.

Capt. Adam Goldberg with the Northwest Fire District said an 18-year-old woman was crossing North Oracle Road near West Rudasill Road, about 300 feet from a crosswalk, when she was hit at about 9:30 p.m. According to a news release, she has critical, life-threatening injuries.

Goldberg said she was walking from the east side to the west side of the street when she was struck.
