ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. — A female pedestrian was injured when she was struck by a vehicle on Route 59 and Robert Pitt Drive in the Monsey area, according to Ramapo Police.

An investigation into the incident determined that at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, a 2004 Toyota sedan being driven by a 17-year-old male from Monsey, struck a 62-year-old woman, also from Monsey, said Sgt. Mark Briggs.

The driver reported that while he was making a left turn from Robert Pitt Drive onto Route 59 his vision became obstructed due to sun glare. As a result, he wasn’t able to see the woman who was crossing Route 59 in the crosswalk and struck her, Briggs said.

The woman suffered a foot injury and was taken to Westchester Medical Center by Hatzolah Ambulance in stable condition.

The driver was issued a summons for failure to yield to a pedestrian.

    Two words. Pedestrian Bridge.
    Plain and simple.
    There is no reason 59 is not a 50 MPH highway and there arent pedestrian bridges and walkways.
