A woman was hit by a car and dragged 40 yards within the Spyglass Apartments complex early Monday morning, Gainesville Police said.

At about 4:58 a.m., police received a call that a woman, whose name has not been released, was hit near a pool inside the Spyglass Apartments complex, located at 701 SW 62nd Blvd., GPD spokesperson Officer Ben Tobias wrote in an email. She was dragged for about 40 yards underneath the car that hit her and is in serious but stable condition, he said.

The car stopped at the apartment complex’s exit gate. Witnesses lifted the car off the woman and pulled her out from under it, Tobias said. She was taken to UF Health Shands Hospital where she remains.

Tobias said police were trying to determine if the car’s driver was under the influence, but they have not made any arrests.

Police did not respond to additional questions about the driver or woman.
