— The driver of a car that hit a woman who was crossing a street just west of downtown on Thursday night has been charged with driving while impaired and driving while his license was revoked.

The woman, Norma Collins McCaulley of McCulloch Street in Raleigh, was seriously injured after she was hit on Boylan Avenue shortly before 9 p.m.

McCaulley, 64, was crossing Boylan between Morgan and Hargett streets when she was hit by a Toyota driven by Mark Steven Teague of Oberlin Road, according to Raleigh police.

Teague, 53, was going an estimated 20 mph when he hit McCaulley, according to police. They say McCaulley was not crossing in a crosswalk and was wearing dark clothing, though she was under a streetlight when she was hit.

Neither Teague or a passenger in his car were injured.
