    A woman was critically injured in a pedestrian accident at the Brass Mill Mall in Waterbury Friday.

    The woman, identified as Yaneli Nava, 34, of Waterbury, was walking through the parking lot of the mall at 495 Union Street when she was hit by a car, according to police. Nava was crossing the travel portion of the parking area to enter the mall at the time of the accident, police said.

    A 17-year-old female was driving the 2002 Saturn SL1 that hit Nava. Police did not identify the driver because of her age.

    Nava was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, where she is listed in critical, but stable condition.

    Police have not filed any charges in connection with the accident.
