A Smyrna woman is in serious condition after being struck by a car while trying to cross Windy Hill Road in Marietta.

Jacela Dee Delgado of Smyrna and her boyfriend were crossing Windy Hill Road, just west of the intersection with Cobb Parkway at 2:58 p.m. Friday when she was struck, according to the Marietta Daily Journal, which cited Marietta police. She was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital.

She was hit by a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu in the left straight lane, well west of the nearest pedestrian crosswalk, police said. 

No charges are expected. Anyone with information is urged to contact Officer Brian Wallace at (770) 794-5266.

Legal crosswalks, people. Legal crosswalks. But I hope she recovers.

When is something going to be done about this stretch of road? There have been at least four pedestrians hit on windy hill between 41 and Village Parkway this year alone. All serious injuries and at least one fatality.

I guess a commissioner's kid has to get killed, but they're not concerned because it's only poor people getting hurt.
