SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 77-year-old pedestrian was severely injured today when a car struck her on a Fox Canyon-area thoroughfare, authorities said.

The westbound 2015 Lexus hit the woman about 7:30 a.m. as she was walking south across the 4800 block of University Avenue, according to San Diego police.

Medics took her to a hospital for treatment of a brain bleed and a dislocated pelvis, Officer Tony Martinez said.

"The injuries are life-threatening,'' he said. It was unclear who was deemed at fault for the incident.
