A 71-year-old woman was seriously injured Thursday afternoon after being struck by a vehicle in northeast Charlotte, authorities said.

The incident happened about 12:30 p.m. in the 3000 block of Milton Road, near North Sharon Amity Road.

A spokeswoman for Medic said the victim was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with injuries that were described as life-threatening.
