A woman was hit by a ute, her head breaking the windscreen, in Lower Hutt this morning.

The incident happened at the Kings Cres-Cornwall St intersection around 9.15am.

Police said, based on witness statements, the young woman's head hit and broke the windscreen of the ute, and she appeared to be wearing headphones and running gear at the time.

Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics attended, helping her to her feet.

However, she had a gash to her forehead and paramedics put a neck brace on her as a precaution before taking her to Hutt Hospital.

Witnesses told police they thought the driver of the ute travelled through a green light legitimately and one man said he had no chance of stopping.

A police officer said witness statements would be examined and declined to make further comment.
