A collision with a car on a downtown street sent a woman to the hospital, but police say she was in the wrong.

The accident happened just after 10 p.m. Saturday on Commerce near I-37.

Police say the woman attempted to cross the street and got struck by the car.

EMS took her to University Hospital and police say she has several broken bones.

They say the driver who hit her will not be charged because the woman was not crossing the street in a designated crosswalk.
