TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One person is injured after an accident on Saturday.

It happened on 14th and Wabash Avenue, around 5 p.m. 

The Terre Haute Police Department told us Mary Batchelor, 54 of Terre Haute, was walking with her two grandchildren. She was trying to cross the street at 14th and Wabash.

That's when police say a vehicle tried to turn west, hitting Batchelor.

Police say the driver told them she did not see Batchelor due to the heavy rain. 

Batchelor was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Her grandchildren, 12 and 13-years-old, were not hit or injured in the accident.

Police cited the driver for not having insurance and towed the vehicle.
