An Augusta woman remained hospitalized Thursday afternoon after being hit by a car while running along a Martinez road.

Anne Marie McGowan was being treated at the Georgia Regents Medical Center Thursday afternoon, where she remained in
critical condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Authorities said McGowan, 61, of Brockwood Drive, was running with a friend along Evans to Locks Road at about 6:19 a.m. She was in the crosswalk on Evans to Locks Road at Stevens Creek Road, when a Dodge Ram truck rolled through a stop sign and hit her, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

The driver of the truck – James Edward Enfinger, 46, of Dent Road in Appling – was not injured. Charges against him were pending Thursday, according to Morris.

Runner

AND IT'S GOING TO GET WORSE! Flagrant violations of the Stop Sign, and continuing through red lights have increased substantially in the last few years, and I don't see anyone pulled for running them, as I am out driving everyday, and see at least 4 or 5 violations a day in a couple of hours. Surely patrol cars see more than that, and it is just a matter of time before many people will be injured, maimed, and killed. I just hope that the LEO's don't have to pick up the pieces of a child at one of these scenes.
