HARLINGEN – A 64-year-old woman remains hospitalized after she was struck by a Harlingen police unit.
According to police, on Monday night, around 9:30 p.m., the woman was hit while attempting to cross the road by a police officer traveling northbound on N 1st Street.
The family of Graciela Jimenez Mejia tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS they want a full investigation to find out why the officer couldn’t stop on time.
KRGV’s Daisy Martinez spoke to Adrian Pena who says he witnessed the accident.
“We yelled for her to get out of the way,” he says. “I laid her flat on her back. She was choking on her blood. I put her head sideways so she won’t choke, and tried to keep her awake.”
Harlingen police have not confirmed if Jimenez Mejia will face charges.
