An elderly Griswold woman suffered minor injuries after being hit by a car Monday morning.

The accident happened at around 11:30-a.m., near 507 1st Street, in Griswold.

 Officials say the driver of a 2002 Dodge, 59-year old William Lee Peebles, of Griswold, was cited for Unsafe Entry Onto a Sidewalk. Following the accident, Dean was transported by Griswold Rescue to Montgomery County Hospital in Red Oak where she was treated for her injuries, and released.
