No charges filed after pedestrian struck while crossing U.S. 158

Police say no charges will be filed after a pedestrian walking across U.S. 158 at a Nags Head intersection while not using the crosswalk was hit Monday by a turning vehicle.
A woman from Kernersville was attempting to cross South Croatan Highway from east to west on the south side of the Barnes Street intersection around 3:30 p.m., according to Nags Head Police Chief Kevin Brinkley.
The marked and signaled crosswalk is on the north side.
A pickup driven by a Nags Head resident turning left from East Barnes Street onto U.S. 158 to head south, struck the pedestrian in the inside southbound lane.
The driver said they did not see the pedestrian, Brinkley said.
The pedestrian was taken to The Outer Banks Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
State statute puts the fault with the pedestrian since there was a marked crosswalk and it was not used, but Brinkley said police chose not to file charges in this case.
