The driver of a black Chrysler Pacifica was westbound on Tidwell and stopped at a traffic light in the left turn lane.  Just as the vehicle began to turn with the green light, the victim ran in front of the Chrysler and was struck.  The victim was transported by Houston Fire Department paramedics to Lyndon B.
