Savannah-Chatham Metro's Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating after a pedestrian was hit by a car in Savannah. 

Officials say around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 18-year-old Melody Johnson tried to cross White Bluff Road near the Oglethorpe Mall when she was struck by a black Volkswagen GTI. Investigators say she was wearing dark clothes and was not in a crosswalk.  

Johnson was taken to Memorial University Medical Center where she is listed in stable condition. 

Westbound lanes of White Bluff Road were closed for several hours so investigators could assess the scene and try to determine exactly what happened. The road has since reopened. 

The accident remains under investigation.
