Although it would be silly to speculate at this time, without all the facts,,,
I must say that the crossing in question, has regular occasions, where pedestrians do try their luck, by running across the road.. With a RED MAN clearly on the crossing.
I have seen many running between cars, because they are too lazy to wait till the crossing changes in their favour...
I hope that the person injured recovers... It would be a shame to lose one's life in an accident regardless...
Also hope that the driver of the vehicle, doesn't suffer from shock....
The crossing there has been a nightmare to drivers for decades. As I can remember back to the days when, before Lloyds Bank was built, and there was a parade of shops there, inc Joyners and JD law....

yes i too hope that the lady in question is OK, and agree with the previous comment from sotonbusdriver, many pedestrians do chance their luck by dodging traffic, but no idea if that was the case here or a car jumping a red light another favourite at most crossings or traffic lights. All i can say is it doesn't bode well for traffic hold ups at the Red lion site should any large corporate food outlet be installing a place there. Road crossing at that point on a blind bend would be even worse unless another crossing is expected to be in place, which would in turn cause more havoc for traffic.
