A South Portland woman hit crossing the street Saturday evening is in stable condition at a Portland hospital.

Wendy Livingston, 64, was not in the crosswalk near 625 Broadway about 5 p.m. when she was hit by a Subaru, South Portland police Lt. Tom Bernard said. He said Livingston was taken to Maine Medical Center with serious injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Nursing supervisor Heidi St. Peter said she could not reveal the type of injuries nor how long Livingston would be in the hospital.

Bernard said a Subaru driven by Benjamin Azarovitz, 21, of Stowe, Vermont, had stopped to let Livingston cross the road. Azarovitz’s Subaru was then hit from behind by a Pontiac Bonneville driven by Justin McCormack, 22, of Portland, pushing it into Livingston, according to Bernard.

“She was pinned under the [Subaru] for a short period of time,” Bernard said.

The area, near the intersection of Broadway and Cottage Road, has a big apartment building, library, single-family houses, and Holy Cross church and school in the neighborhood.

South Portland police still are investigating the crash, Bernard said. The Maine State Police reconstructed the crash.
