Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Authorities have released the name of the woman who was hit by a van in Superior Tuesday night.

50 year old Shawn Roa of Superior is still listed in critical condition at St. Luke's Hospital in Duluth, however she has been improving.

Tuesday night, the Superior Police Department was called to the scene of a car accident involving a pedestrian at the bottom of the Blatnik Bridge.
