PORTSMOUTH -- A woman was seriously injured after being hit by a car outside the 96x Fest in Portsmouth Thursday night.

Emergency personnel received the call at the nTelos Pavilion around 10:15 p.m., according to Det. Misty Holley with the Portsmouth Police Department.

When paramedics arrived, they immediately began administering aid to the 27-year-old Cindy Pollard. The woman was eventually transported to Sentara Norfolk General with serious injuries, Holley said.

According to Pollard's facebook page, she suffered a broken leg and shoulder and had stitches in her forehead.

'I literally have no clue how it all happened one minute I'm standing there, and all the sudden I see this speeding car jump the median. I woke up in the ambulance and didn't know I had been hit until I got to the hospital. From what I hear I have two fractures in my left leg and one in my left collar bone. I haven't seen my head yet but I know I have stitches,' Pollard wrote.

The driver, Olivia Langford, 24, was arrested at the scene after failing a sobriety test. She was not injured during the accident.

Investigators say Langford was traveling in the wrong direction when she struck the median at Crawford Circle and crashed into the fencing at the pavilion after striking the victim.

Langford is reportedly a law student at the College of William & Mary.

She was also an intern at the US Attorney's Office in Newport News. They confirmed to 13News Now that Langford was terminated Friday.

No other bystanders were injured as result of the accident.
