Woman hit, seriously injured by driver in Westland

- Police closed off a part of Merriman Road early Friday morning due to a pedestrian accident.

A woman was hit by a car just before 3:15 a.m. between Palmer and Cherry Hill. She was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police say the driver of the SUV did stop immediately and has been cooperating with police.

"This time of the morning, it's very dark in this area. There's not a lot of traffic, so there wouldn't have been a lot of headlights around," says Westland Police Sgt. Robert Kenyon. "We've closed the road since then. The driver from the other vehicle did stop and has been cooperating with the police."

Police haven't yet given the name of the victim, but say she's in her 20s.
