HELL'S KITCHEN — A woman was taken to the hospital Monday afternoon after being struck by a car while crossing the street, fire officials said.

Witnesses at the scene said the woman was heading north on 10th Avenue and crossing West 57th Street when she was struck by a grey car a little after 2 p.m.

She had blood on her face and was crying, witnesses said. The vehicle stayed at the scene.

"We were going through a green light. We were in the right lane and it just happened," said a man who was a passenger in the car and asked not to be identified.

Fire officials said the woman's injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
