ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Authorities say an 80-year-old driver who critically injured a pedestrian in St. Louis went home to call police because she didn’t have a cellphone with her.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the driver collided with the pedestrian around 6:50 p.m. Sunday as he was standing or walking on a road. Police say the woman returned to the scene after alerting officers. It is not clear whether she will face charges.
