BEATLES: Woman Hit By Car in Abbey Road Crosswalk
City officials were already calling for a crossing guard for the heavily trafficked London intersection.
A woman was hospitalized Friday after being struck by a car and thrown in the air as she ran across the crosswalk made famous by The Beatles on the cover of their Abbey Road album.
Captured on a webcam set up by Abbey Road Studios for the benefit of tourists re-enacting The Beatles’ walk across the street, the woman appearedto be running across the intersection, either trying to beat or oblivious of the oncoming car. Instead she collided with it and was thrown onto the middle of the road screaming in pain. The car, a Volkswagen, stopped briefly, then drove off, as pedestrians hurried to help the woman.
