The accident happened around 5.40pm yesterday at Anderlecht's Westland Shopping Center. The victim sustained life-threatening injuries and underwent several operations already. She is still in a coma. The accident happened on a zebra crossing near the shopping mall. Motorists always have to give way to pedestrians crossing on the zebra marks.
The driver who hit the pedestrian is still on the run. The accident is yet another hit-and-run incident in a whole series. There were 2 involving children on a bicycle just recently. Both children died in the accident after being hit by a car.
