Charges are pending against a Wilmington man after he allegedly hit a pedestrian with his motorcycle Saturday afternoon.

City police say 46-year-old Alfredo Cosme unlawfully passed the vehicle slowing in front of him on West Fourth Street.

What Cosme may not have known was that the vehicle was slowing down to let a woman cross the street at the intersection with North Rodney Street.

Police say Cosme struck the 35-year-old victim with his 2003 Yamaha motorcycle, sending her to Christiana Hospital in critical condition.

Authorities say Cosme also went to Christiana Hospital for his minor injuries. He was listed in stable condition.
