A 30-year-old Newtown, Pa. woman was stuck by a car just before 9 p.m., Friday night on West Chester Pike in front of Dunwoody Village.
Newtown Officer Joe Vandergrift said Ann Muller who lived at the HollyBrook condos was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, public drunkenness and pedestrians crossing at other than sidewalks.
Officers arrived on the scene and administered first aid to Ms. Mullen who was then transported by ambulance to a nearby landing zone where she was flown to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Vandegrift said the operator of the striking vehicle said Ms. Mullen crossed in front of her when she stepped down from the center divide. The driver said she had no time to apply her brakes so she took evasive action but unfortunately struck Ms. Mullen.
A Riddle Hospital Paramedic told police he found a vial filled with numerous different pills. The pills will be tested at Lima Regional Testing Facility.
A male aquaintenance of Ms. Mullen who ran across the pike moments before she was struck was also interviewed and was determined to be under the influence of a narcotic.
