Ferndale — A 40-year-old woman is recovering after being hit by a vehicle while walking Woodward in Ferndale on Tuesday night, police said.

The crash took place about 6:35 p.m. on southbound Woodward at Marshall, between Eight and Nine Mile.

Police say the victim suffered head and leg trauma in the crash, but was conscious at the scene.

Medics transported her a few miles north to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, and she is listed in stable condition.

Sgt. Baron Brown, spokesman for the Ferndale Police Department, said the driver was a 45-year-old Detroit woman in a 2012 Lincoln MKX. 

A Michigan State Police crash reconstructionist worked the scene to detail what happened. The early belief is that the victim ran into the road "mid-block," rather than at a marked crossing.

The road was closed for about four hours.
