A woman is fighting for her life, after she stepped into a moving car on Transit Road.

It happened Tuesday night, just before 10:00 p.m. in front of the Eastern Hills Mall.

Amherst police say 26-year-old Tymika Barnes was talking to her husband on her cell phone when she stepped off the median and into the car.

She was flown to ECMC and was in surgery overnight Tuesday.

No charges have been filed.
