Pedestrian struck in E. Toledo

EAST TOLEDO, Ohio (WTOL) - Jennifer McFate, 35, was run down as she walked home around 1 a.m. Tuesday, September 22.

It happened in an alley near White and Freedom in east Toledo. Police tell us the woman was walking in the alley when she was run over by a van.

The driver, 46 year-old John Stevens, then hit a parked car and a tree and tried to take off. Neighbors stopped Stevens and held him until police got there.

"I was in my home. I live right down there, and I heard 'Errrr' like a squeak, and then crash -- into a bunch of trees. It sounded like a car crashing into something. It was scary," said Samantha Edmondson.

The woman is being treated at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center. Her condition is not being released.

The driver was also treated for injuries and is facing felony charges.
