WILLIAMSBURG — A woman was seriously injured after a city Board of Education truck hit her while she in a busy Williamsburg intersection Tuesday afternoon, witnesses and officials said.

The unidentified woman was crossing Grand Street heading south at about 1:40 p.m. when the truck slammed into her while making a left turn from Graham Avenue onto Grand, witnesses and officials said.

"There was a lot of blood coming from her head," said David Yuspov, 36, who works near the intersection. "She wasn't moving."

She was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition, a police spokesman said.

The truck, which had a "New York City Board of Education" logo on its door, had a green light when it made the turn and the driver remained at the scene, Yuspov added.

Police did not have any immediate information on whether any charges would be filed against the driver.

A Department of Education spokeswoman referred questions to the NYPD.
