(BEDFORD) - A near miss on Bedford's Brookside drive turned into a confirmed hit. Bedford police say 75-year-old Johanna Elliott of Bedford was heading up a hill on Brookside Drive when another vehicle was coming the other way.

Elliott moved to the right to avoid the oncoming car but moved too far to the right, and struck a wall next to the pavement.

Bedford officers say the car suffered major undercarriage damage and minor body damage, but Elliott complained of chest pain and was bleeding from her mouth and arm.

An ambulance arrived and took her to Bedford Regional Medical Center.

No citations were issued.
