A woman changing a flat tire on the side of a road in the Antelope Valley was hit by a passing car and was near death, California Highway Patrol officers said Sunday.

The 28-year-old woman, who is a resident of Palmdale, was rushed to Antelope Valley Hospital, where she was listed in grave condition, according to a CHP crash report.

The woman was on the side of the road on 240th Street East, south of Avenue O, when a northbound blue 1999 GMC Suburban hit her at 7 p.m. Saturday.

A 22-year-old man standing near her was also hit, but survived with only pain on his leg.

The driver of the Suburban was a 47-year-old woman, who was not drunk, the CHP said. She was not arrested, but no citations were reported.
