An Atlantic woman was hospitalized after being hit by a car Thursday

The Iowa State Patrol says 34-year-old Jennifer Lower was crossing the street at the intersection of Highway 71 and Highway 6 in Atlantic, just before 2:30 in the afternoon, when she was hit by a car.

Troopers say the car was driven by 52-year-old Clark Carns, who could face charges in the accident.

Paramedics took Lower to a local hospital, and then she had to be flown by medical helicopter to an Omaha hospital.

Her condition hasn’t been released.
