A driver who apparently had gotten out of her car to help a disabled motorist was struck by another car Wednesday afternoon in northwest Roanoke.
Emergency crews responded to the Walgreens in the 4800 block of Williamson Road near its intersection with Hershberger Road shortly after 1:45 p.m.
Police spokesman Sgt. Jason Holt said a woman was southbound on Williamson Road when she stopped at the intersection to aid a fellow motorist.
"When she stepped out in the roadway to check on the stranded motorist, that's when she was struck," Holt said.
A man at the scene who gave only his first name, William, said he slammed on the brakes of his Nissan Sentra but couldn't stop in time to avoid the woman.
Roanoke Fire-EMS Battalion Chief T.L. King said the victim was taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
Holt said no charges would be filed in the incident.
