An unidentified woman was critically injured late Friday night in Somerset County when a car struck her while she was lying in the roadway of Route 40.

The accident happened at 9:55 p.m. near the intersection of the National Pike near Newberry Road in Addison.

According to state police, the woman was lying in the roadway as two bystanders attempted to stop traffic but the car's right tire struck the woman's head and neck.

The woman, who had no identification on her or at the crash scene, was taken by helicopter to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va.

She is described as a white woman between 20 and 40 years old who is 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has brown hair. She has a left eyebrow piercing (but no ring in her brow), and tattoos of stick figures on her upper right arm and a heart on her right hip.

Her clothing was small/petite. She was wearing dark blue jeans with white embroidery on the rear pockets, a blue Aeropostale short-sleeved shirt with lime green trim on the sleeves, a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with the words "Niagara State" and "New York" on the front in white letters and dark blue Skecher sneakers with pink and white trim.

Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to call state police at the Somerset barracks at 814-445-4104. breaking - neigh_east
