A woman is in critical condition after she was hit by a car walking across an intersection in West Plains.

Investigators say the 26-year-old was crossing the intersection of Porter Wagoner and 7th Street when she was hit.

She was transported to CoxHealth in Springfield with life-threatening injuries.

Authorities at the scene believe the woman was not walking in the designated crosswalk area at the time of the crash.
