A West Point woman in her 60s was sideswiped and injured as she entered her red Honda Civic EX after coming out of West Point Post Office Tuesday afternoon.
The woman, whose name was not available at the scene, was taken by Volunteer Medical Service Corps of Lansdale to Abington Memorial Hospital for treatment for head lacerations, according to Upper Gwynedd Township Officer Ted Caiola.
A small puddle of blood was visible on the roadway of West Point Pike outside the driver door of the Civic. The Civic was located along the curb of West Point Pike in front of the post office.
"A 60-year-old patron of the post office comes out to her car. She was by the door, waiting for traffic to go by, and she was sideswiped by a 30-year-old driver," Caiola said.
The striking vehicle was a gray Toyota Echo, which was towed from the scene.
The Honda sustained rear driver side damage to the fender, along with a bent wheel. The Toyota sustained damage to the front passenger side fender and wheel.
Caiola said the driver of the striking vehicle - a brunette female wearing a salmon-colored tank top and shorts from Perkasie - was not under arrest. Upper Gwynedd Police gave the woman a ride back to the station in order to get a ride home.
Caiola said the driver of the striking vehicle will not be charged at this time. The driver was uninjured, Caiola said.
Police were dispatched at 1:20 p.m. for a struck pedestrian call.
Upper Gwynedd Police were assisted by Upper Gwynedd Fire Police at the scene. West Point Pike was closed between Jones Avenue and Garfield Avenue for about 45 minutes.
