LAMAR COUNTY, MS -

A Lamar County woman is lucky to be alive after being side-swiped by a motorcycle on Monday.  

Linda Lott, 86, was walking across Highway 589 Monday after getting her mail when she said a motorcycle ran into her.

She wasn't knocked over, but the impact broke her finger and injured her stomach and leg.

She said the rider didn't stop to check on her and she didn't get a good look at him.  

"I don't think I'm angry and I'm certainly glad he didn't fall and I'm very thankful that I wasn't hurt any worse than I was," Lott said. 

The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
