He said Lucy Davenport was hit by the truck in the parking lot of the Corner Market, 3046 Indiana Ave. about 11:57 a.m. as she was crossing to enter the store. She was taken to Merit Health River Region Medical Center where she was treated and released.

He said witnesses described the truck as a black Ford pickup driven by an older white man, and gave officers a partial description of the truck’s tag. Stewart said anyone with information about the incident can call Vicksburg Police at 601-636-2511.
