A woman was hit in the crosswalk near the on Monday morning, according to the .
She received what appeared to be minor injuries to her hip, and was taken to the hospital as a precaution, a firefighter said.
Around 11 a.m., the 27-year-old was walking east, toward the old store, after the light at Brighton Avenue turned green, and a car turning left from Brighton hit her at low speed, according to public safety officials.
The car had been waiting at the light, but "took off" when it turned green, according to the Fire Department.
As a result of the collision, the woman fell down, and later told firefighters she couldn't put weight on her left leg. There was no apparent damage to the car.
The pedestrian was taken to Kaiser Oakland for treatment.
A woman was in January. In that incident a driver, who also was turning from Brighton Avenue left onto San Pablo, did not see the pedestrian, and struck her. She received injuries to her face and reported complaints of pain.
After Monday's accident, the Fire Department urged caution for both pedestrians and drivers in Albany.
"You have a major highway running through the city. People drive like maniacs," said the firefighter. "Just like your mom said, look both ways. Just because it's green doesn't mean it's clear."
