MOULTRIE -- A pedestrian struck by a car Tuesday was hospitalized but has since been released.

Moultrie police said Elsie C. Vickers, 82, of 15th Street Southeast, was struck by a 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup as she crossed Third Avenue Southeast about 11 a.m.

Third Avenue at that point passes between the southern part of Moultrie Plaza and the shopping center's parking spaces. Brenda S. Peacock, 49, of Seventh Street Southeast, told police she was backing her Frontier out of one of the parking spaces and did not see Vickers, police reports said.

Vickers suffered injuries to the back of her head and her arms. She was admitted to Colquitt Regional Medical Center Tuesday. When The Observer called Thursday to check on her condition, a hospital spokesman said she had been released.

No citations were issued.
