A 70-year-old woman survived after being struck by a truck while crossing a roadway at a busy intersection in Fairfield County.

Police responded to the incident around 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 4, after the Bridgeport Emergency Operations Center received a telephone call regarding a serious crash at the intersection of Granfield Avenue and Success Avenue.

A green 2001 Ford F350 pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Granfield Avenue approaching its intersection with Success Avenue when it failed to stop for the stop sign and struck the Bridgeport woman as she crossed Granfield Avenue from the northwest corner of the intersection, said Bridgeport Police Capt.
