A driver trying to cross Lincoln from the eastbound lanes of 5th Avenue was hit by another car Friday night, forcing that car up onto the sidewalk and into a woman walking there, police said.

Denver Police responded to the wreck just after 8 p.m. Officers on scene said the woman's ankle was pinned between the car and the building on the northeast corner of Lincoln - a local communications business.

According to police, the driver who tried to cross 5th is the driver most likely to be cited in this wreck.

The woman was taken to a local hospital with a broken ankle, police said.
