An elderly west suburban woman was airlifted to a hospital after she was struck by a car Tuesday morning near a shopping center.

The 85-year-old Geneva woman was walking southbound in the 2500 block of Miller Road near the entrance to the Shops of Randall Square at 7:22 a.m. when she was struck by a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, according to Geneva police.

The driver of the Cobalt, a 26-year-old Geneva man, stopped at the scene and told police he did not see the woman, police said.

She was initially taken to Delnor Hospital and then was airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. Police said her injuries are potentially life-threatening.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
