A 72-year-old pedestrian was hospitalized Saturday morning with injuries he sustained when he crossed a Skyline neighborhood street outside of a marked crosswalk and was struck by a car.
The man walked into the 7600 block of Skyline Drive mid-block and was struck by a 2012 Kia Optima driven by a 29-year-old woman who could not stop before striking the pedestrian, according to San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims.
As a result of the crash, the pedestrian fractured both legs and sustained cuts to his head and body, Heims said.
Alcohol was not considered a factor in the crash.
