Police reported that a speeding car crashed into a 70-year-old woman in a wheelchair in an unmarked crosswalk on the west side of Balboa Park, breaking her hip.

The collision happened about 3:55 p.m. Friday in the 2300 block of Sixth Avenue, said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The woman was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, Stafford said.

No alcohol or drugs were involved, but speed was a factor in the crash, according to the officer.

The driver was described only as a 55-year-old man.

Traffic Division is investigating and it was not immediately clear whether the man had been arrested or cited.
