A woman walking on a sidewalk in a Sanford neighborhood is in critical condition after being hit by a car Friday, according to police.

The woman was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries, Gillett said. 

It’s unknown why the driver, who hasn’t been identified, veered off the road.
