After a taxi driver struck a 60-year-old man jaywalking diagonally across an intersection near Horton Plaza on Sunday, police suspect that the pedestrian was drunk.

The collision was in the 100 block of West Broadway at 1 a.m., according to San Diego Police Sgt. Tom Sullivan. As the pedestrian crossed the intersection he continued against a no-walk signal.

The taxi was traveling at about 25 mph when it hit the pedestrian, causing serious injuries to the victim’s head, multiple fractures to his pelvis and lacerations, Sullivan said.

The man was taken to a hospital by paramedics.
