LOVES PARK, Ill. (AP) - A 47-year-old Loves Park woman is in critical condition after she was struck by a dump truck while trying to cross the street.

Kimberly Dezarn was injured Thursday morning when the truck hit her. She was taken to the intensive care unit at a local hospital.

Loves Park Deputy Chief Chuck Lynde says authorities believe she was in the crosswalk when the accident happened. He says there were no obvious signs that the dump truck driver was impaired.
