Marishka Tulien, who lives on Dale Street, was traveling from west to east when a 1999 Buick Century driven by Moenae Robinson of Van Buskirk Avenue struck her as she was attempting to cross the street, Booth said. Tulien is being treated for non-life threatening injuries and is scheduled to be transferred to Yale-New Haven Hospital.
