A 59-year-old East Falls woman was hospitalized after being struck by a pickup truck during Friday night’s trick-or-treating hours.

The 7:15 p.m. incident on the 3400 block of West Queen Lane brought several police, fire and ambulance vehicles to a block crowded with Halloween revelers.

According to police, the driver of the Ford F-150 said he was exiting a parking spot along the block and “did not see her until the point of collision.”

The victim, an assistant district attorney who was crossing the street in the middle of the block, told investigators she didn’t remember what had happened.

She was taken to Temple University Hospital with a concussion and, among other injuries, a broken leg.

The driver remained at the scene and is not currently facing any charges in connection with the incident, police said.

Neither identity was publicly released on Monday.
