Karen Buchholz, 67, of Spencer, sustained non-incapacitating injuries while crossing Grand Avenue at 5:28 p.m. Thursday.
Darrell McGranahan, 85, of Ruthven, told Spencer Police he left the stop sign at West Ninth Street, at the intersection with Grand Avenue, and was proceeding to turn left onto Grand Avenue. As he crossed the median, and began to travel north, he struck Buchholz as she was crossing the roadway.
McGranahan said he didn't see Buchholz until after he struck her with his 2011 Dodge Journey.
Buchholz's husband explained the couple had been crossing Grand from East Ninth Street and were just about to the median at the time of the accident.
Buchholz reportedly complained of pain in her right wrist.
McGranahan was cited for failure to yield right of way to a pedestrian.
