A woman who was assisting two stranded motorists was hit by a car on Interstate 90. The accident happened during last Wednesday’s morning snowfall. An incident report states that the 40-year-old woman was walking along the westbound berm of I-90 to assist people in a disabled vehicle when she was hit by a man in a Volkswagen Jetta who lost control in the slush. The victim suffered severe injuries from the collision and was taken to UPMC Hamot while the driver was arrested under suspicion of DUI.
