BATAVIA, NY - A Buffalo News Kids Day volunteer is in a Rochester hospital after being hit by a car Tuesday morning.
Other volunteers say the woman was part of a group selling special edition newspapers to benefit Women and Children's Hospital.
Police say the volunteer was in the crosswalk attempting to get to the other side of the four-lane highway when she was hit. The driver of the car told police they did not see her and she apparently didn't see them due to another oncoming car blocking her view.
The victim was taken by Mercyflight to Strong Memorial with a broken leg, but was conscious and alert during the transport.
