A 56-year-old visitor was injured when struck in a Laguna Beach crosswalk by a vehicle turning at Cress Street onto Coast Highway about 1:10 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16, police said.

Portions of Coast Highway were temporarily closed as a result of the collision and following accident investigation.

The woman from Medford, Ore., was transported to Mission Hospital in Laguna Beach with a complaint of pain to her left hip and leg, said Sgt. Louise Callus.

She was struck by a 59-year-old motorist, a Laguna Beach resident, who was traveling at slow speed but failed to see the woman crossing as he turned left from Cress into southbound lanes of Coast Highway, Callus said.

It is unclear if the motorist will be cited; the accident is still under investigation, she said.
