A 49-year-old man suffered serious injuries when he was struck by an SUV at an intersection in the Midway District, police reported Monday.
The accident occurred shortly after 3:55 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Rosecrans Street and Midway Drive, San Diego Police Officer John Buttle said.
A 41-year-old woman was driving a 2018 Mazda CX5 southbound on Rosecrans street when the 49-year-old man started crossing at Midway Drive, in violation of a red “no crossing” light, Buttle said.
The SUV struck the victim, who was taken to hospital for treatment of a skull fracture, a laceration to the back of his head and a fractured right ankle, the officer said.
The driver remained at the scene and intoxication was not a factor in the crash.
