A woman is recovering this morning after being struck by a car. That accident happened on South Alameda and Poenisch Drive just before 2:30.

Detectives say a white BMW swerved to avoid hitting a group of friends walking in the street. The 22-year old was the only one hit.

The driver of the car stayed at the scene and waited for paramedics to arrive. Detectives say the woman --who has not been identified-- was taken to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital where she is expected to recover.

The driver will not be facing any charges.
