Man Hit and Injured by Motorist in Santa Rosa

 
SANTA ROSA, CA (February 6, 2019) – A pedestrian was severely injured when he was hit by a vehicle Friday night on College Avenue near North Dutton Avenue.
 
Police responded to calls around 7:40 p.m. about a man being hit just east of the railroad tracks on College Avenue, Sgt. Summer Gloeckner said.
 
The pedestrian was found lying in the center median with a silver Toyota Tundra pickup truck still at the scene.
 
The 51-year-old Santa Rosa man who struck the pedestrian was driving eastbound in the No. 1 lane and had just crossed the tracks when it struck an object. The driver stopped immediately and realized he had struck a man. An off-duty nurse stopped to help aid the victim until paramedics arrived and took over.
 
Witnesses stated that the pedestrian was in a designated crosswalk at the time, but the crossing lights were not activated when he was hit. The unidentified pedestrian suffered head trauma, major internal injuries and a fractured leg.
 
According to Gloeckner, an initial investigation determined that impairment by alcohol played a role on the pedestrian’s part; however, a follow-up investigation is underway.
 
When under the influence, we can lose our better judgment and moral compass. Never operate a motor vehicle if you’re under the influence. Pedestrians should also be aware of their surroundings. We can all do our part to harbor safer roadways by being alert, defensive and responsible.
