A Norristown woman was struck by a car while walking through Pottstown with her child and boyfriend Tuesday evening, say police.
The mother had been waiting with her boyfriend and her child in a baby carriage to cross at the corner of Shoemaker Road and the southwest corner of Rt. 100 in Pottstown, say Pottstown police.
It was reported that the three tried to cross in an easterly direction while the traffic light was red and a ‘don’t cross’ hand signal was displayed, police say.
