A man was seriously injured when he tried to cross a College area street against a red signal and was struck by a car, police said Sunday.
It happened just after 5 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of College Avenue and El Cajon Boulevard near San Diego State University, according to San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims.
A 61-year-old man was trying to cross College Avenue and continue west on El Cajon Boulevard at the same time as a Chevrolet Camaro driven by a 29-year-old man approached the intersection on a green light.
The pedestrian stepped into the crosswalk against a red do-not-walk signal and was hit by the Camaro, Heims said.
The pedestrian was taken to a hospital with head injuries that were described as serious, but not life-threatening, Heims said.
