VALLEY CITY - A 92-year-old woman struck by a car Sunday evening in Valley City was airlifted to a Fargo hospital to be treated for her injuries.


Rita Weber remained hospitalized at Sanford Health on Monday morning, but her condition was not available, hospital staff said.

The crash happened just after 6 p.m. Sunday as Weber, a Valley City resident, was crossing the street, according to Valley City police.

Robert Mittleider, 32, was turning left from Central Avenue North onto Sixth Street Northwest. He did not see Weber in the street and hit her, police said. Police say neither speed nor alcohol was a factor. Mittleider, of Valley City, was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian.

The crash is still under investigation.
