UPDATE, Friday, 3:30 p.m.: Assistant Police Chief Bryan Stephens tells the Outpost that the pedestrian is hospitalized, but is in stable condition. 

There were no indications that the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and the driver was not arrested. The investigation is ongoing.


Original post: Traffic on Broadway is impacted after the driver of a vehicle struck a pedestrian near the intersection of Henderson Street a few minutes ago. 

A reader of the Outpost, on the scene, says that the victim is breathing but is clearly badly injured. First responders are currently attempting to care for the patient.

The driver of the vehicle, who spoke with a witness, said that the pedestrian “came out of nowhere.”

Avoid the area if you can. Traffic is down to one lane in either direction.

We’ll have more on this tomorrow.
