Jamie McCourt's driver struck a pedestrian as the former Los Angeles Dodgers CEO arrived at the courthouse to testify in her divorce case.

The pedestrian was taken by ambulance to a hospital Monday morning after the driver of the white 2010 Land Rover hit a woman on a sidewalk.

Witness Debra Amos says the SUV was backing out of the driveway when it struck the pedestrian, who works at the downtown building.

Jamie McCourt was sitting in the front passenger seat and her attorney was in the back seat when they arrived at the courthouse. It was unclear if they were in the vehicle at the time of the accident.

The SUV driver, whose name wasn't disclosed, was questioned by sheriff's deputies.

McCourt is resuming testimony in her divorce dispute with Frank McCourt. At stake is ownership of the Dodgers.
