8th Avenue NW was mostly blocked to traffic Friday night because a woman was hit by a minivan just before 6:30 p.m.
The accident appears to have happened on the east side of 8th Avenue, across the street from the Take 5 Urban Market. Dale (co-editor of PhinneyWood) was on a bus that came upon the scene immediately after the accident.
He says the woman may have been in the crosswalk at the time. She was conscious while paramedics tended to her.
