The accident occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday, when the driver of a Hyundai sedan entered the Costa Verde Center parking lot in the 4200 block of Esplanade Court and apparently did not see the pedestrian, according to San Diego police.

The woman, whose name was not released, suffered life-threatening head and leg injuries, according to Officer Sarah Foster of the San Diego Police Department.
