A woman suffered serious injuries when she was struck by an SUV on Sacramento Street on Wednesday evening, Berkeley police said.
The accident was reported just after 9 p.m. to police, who closed the street to traffic. Initial reports said the woman was "breathing but not responding," said Lt. David Lindenau of the Berkeley Police Department.
She was taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland.
The driver of the Chevy Yukon remained on the scene and was co-operating with investigators, Lindenau said.
