GUILDERLAND — A woman was seriously injured on Wednesday morning as she walked across Winding Brook Drive near Western Avenue and was struck by a van, police say.

Aferdita Bardhi, 53, had been walking west on Route 20 when she crossed over Winding Brook, and was struck by a transportation van owned by the Rejha Group and driven by Scott J. Schurman, 56, of Troy, according to a release from the Guilderland Police.
