A woman was hospitalized with critical injuries Friday when a motorist struck her on a La Quinta street, prompting an off-duty firefighter to help her, a sheriff's sergeant said.
The unidentified woman tried crossing Fred Waring Drive near Dune Palms Road when she was hit, Riverside County sheriffs Sgt. Randy Wedertz said.
The firefighter -- also unidentified -- apparently was in the area and rendered first aid to the injured woman before paramedics arrived.
She was listed in critical condition, Wedertz said.
