The Union employee out of the hospital

An employee of The Union who was struck by a car Thursday evening was released from the hospital four hours later and was resting at home Friday.

Lauri Polmanteer, a packaging clerk at the newspaper, said Friday she has “bumps, bruises, scrapes, and a lot of soreness” after being struck by a car while crossing South Auburn Street near Bank Street at 5:57 p.m. Thursday.

The driver told police she did not see Polmanteer crossing the street.

Polmanteer was released from Sutter Roseville Medical Center about 10 p.m. Thursday. She expressed gratitude Friday to everyone who showed concern for her welfare.
