NIAGARA FALLS – A pregnant woman hit by the open door of a passing car as she walked down an alley behind a Third Street bar at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday believes she is the victim of retaliation for an earlier fight in the bar, police said.

The 24-year-old victim, police said, believes the driver of the car deliberately opened the door as the car passed her about 10 mph.

The injured woman, who is four months pregnant, was taken to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. She suffered cuts and bruises on her face, chest, left knee and right upper arm, police said.
