COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A woman was transported to an area hospital after she was struck by a vehicle on Assembly Street Tuesday afternoon.

Just after noon, emergency crews were dispatched to the intersection of Assembly Street and Greene Street for a report of a pedestrian hit by a vehicle.

Police say the victim was in the crosswalk attempting to cross Assembly Street when she was hit by a vehicle turning left from westbound Greene Street.

According to investigators, the vehicle had a green light and did not appear to be speeding. The pedestrian had a "walk" signal.

Police expect to charge the driver, but haven't yet determined what those charges will be.

The pedestrian's injuries do not appear to be life threatening, according to police.

According to the City of Columbia, a recent traffic study conducted by USC showed that 3,000 people cross the intersection of Assembly and Greene streets each day. That number is expected to triple when the Darla Moore School of Business is completed later this year.
