Authorities identify woman hit on S. Topeka Blvd.
Authorities released the name Friday of the woman who suffered critical injuries when she was hit by a vehicle just south of Topeka.
The Shawnee Co. Sheriff's Office says Janelle Martin, 34, was walking in the middle of the northbound lanes of SW Topeka Blvd. around 9 p.m. Thursday. She was hit by a pickup in the 6800 block, near Airport Dr.
Authorities say the pickup's driver stopped at the scene and did not appear to be impaired. The Sheriff's Office says it continues investigating, but they do not suspect any suspicious activity connected with the incident.
Martin's injuries were considered life-threatening. She remained hospitalized Friday.
Northbound traffic was detoured until about midnight while authorities investigated.
