OCEAN CITY, Md.- Police say a pedestrian was injured when she was struck by a vehicle in a marked crosswalk in Ocean City over the weekend.

Ocean City police said the incident occurred shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday in the area of 28th Street and Philadelphia Avenue.  According to police, the 25-year-old victim was walking with the pedestrian signal on Philadelphia Avenue at 28th Street from east to west when she was struck by a vehicle turning onto northbound Philadelphia Avenue from Robin Drive. 

Authorities said the investigation determined the driver at the intersection failed to yield the right of way to the pedestrian and struck her while she was in the crosswalk.

The victim, whose name is not being released, was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. 

The driver, identified as 21-year-old Tess Ann Marianetti of Bel Air, Md., was cited for failing to yield to pedestrian in crosswalk.  Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, police said.
