A restaurant worker is recovering after police say she was struck by a car while walking home from her shift. 

The Westerly Sun reports Sierra Gosselin was in the middle of a crosswalk in Westerly, Rhode Island Friday when a man driving a rental car struck her head-on. 

Police say the impact sent her flying back several feet. Westerly Police Capt. Shawn Lacey says Gosselin suffered minor injuries, and she is expected to make a full recovery. 

The 59-year-old driver has been cited for failure to grant right of way to a pedestrian.
