A 43-year-old woman was seriously injured Monday afternoon when she was struck in a Moulton Parkway crosswalk by a silver Honda Civic, authorities said.
The driver, a 45-year-old man, was also hurt. And a SigAlert was issued on Moulton between Aliso Niguel and Avila roads (the road was expected to reopen shortly after 6 p.m.).
Deputies were called to the scene around 2:45 p.m., after the southbound Honda hit the westbound pedestrian at Aliso Niguel, said Orange County Sheriff's Department Lt. Dan Dwyer.
The woman suffered head trauma and injuries to her left leg, Dwyer said. The driver had injuries to his left arm. Both were taken to Mission Hospital, he said.
Additionally, a motorcycle deputy responding to the scene suffered minor injuries in a "slow collision" with a patrol car, Dwyer said.
The sheriff's major-accident reconstruction team was investigating the Honda-pedestrian accident and examining skid marks at the scene late Monday afternoon, Dwyer said. It was not initially clear whether the pedestrian or driver had the right-of-way, he added.
