Berkeley Police Department, or BPD, advised the community to avoid Sacramento Street at Oregon Street because of a vehicle collision in an alert sent out Sunday.

According to an email sent by BPD spokesperson Officer Byron White, officers responded to a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian at the intersection at 5:56 p.m. Sunday. White wrote that a 69-year-old woman was crossing Sacramento Street when she was struck by a southbound vehicle.

The woman was seriously injured and was transported to a local hospital, and the driver, a 58-year-old Berkeley man, remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators, the email said. The email also said the department’s Fatal Accident Investigation Team responded to the scene because of the severity of the collision and is handling the investigation. The woman was in critical, stable condition as of Monday afternoon.

According to the alert, southbound Sacramento Street at Oregon Street was closed, as was eastbound Oregon Street at Stanton Street, while BPD investigated the injury collision.
