LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Mayor Eric Garcetti, who was a passenger in a police vehicle that struck a pedestrian on Tuesday, visited the woman in the hospital today.

“I had the pleasure of meeting Juliet Nicolas this morning at L.A. County-USC Medical Center,” Garcetti said. “We had a nice conversation and I am very pleased that she is in good spirits. I wish her a speedy recovery.”

The 60-year-old woman, who was not seriously hurt, could be released from the hospital later today.

According to the mayor’s office, the vehicle — a black SUV traditionally used to transport the mayor — was being driven east on Second Street near Spring Street when it struck the woman about 12:20 p.m. The mayor, who was returning to City Hall, was on the phone and did not see her get hit, according to his office.
