RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Police issued a summons to the 98-year-old driver of a car that struck a pedestrian in Ridgewood Friday night, sending her to the hospital with injuries that they said on Monday weren't life-threatening.

The elderly village resident was driving his four-door black Volkswagen west on East Ridgewood Avenue when it struck the 40-something woman as she crossed at Pershing Avenue around 7 p.m., Detective Capt. Forest Lyons told Daily Voice.

Passersby helped stabilized the woman until she could be taken to Hackensack University Medical Center, one of them said.

An investigation was continuing, Lyons said, adding that the driver received a summons for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk after he remained at the scene.

The Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence.
