Woman faces charges after being hit by car

SANDWICH – A 20-year-old Waterman woman faces criminal charges after she ran in front of a car last week while intoxicated and was struck by the car, authorities said.

Brandi N. Palmer, of the 10000 block of Shabbona Grove Road, was charged with underage drinking and pedestrian under the influence.

Sandwich police were dispatched about 8:25 p.m. April 10, to Casey’s on Route 34 for a report of an accident. When officers arrived, they found Palmer lying in the road. After talking to witnesses and the driver, police learned Palmer had run in front of the car and was hit, authorities said.

Palmer was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries, police said. An employee at Valley West Hospital said she was unaware whether Palmer was still hospitalized.

Palmer is due in Sandwich City Court on May 21.
