Early Tuesday morning around 7 A.M. approximately 40 minutes before sunrise a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle whilst crossing South Pine Avenue.
The man, 44, was struck by a Nissan Altima crossing the 1200 block east to west, where there was no crosswalk. The man was wearing dark clothing when the incident occurred, no doubt a contributing factor.
The names of the victim and the driver have yet to be released, however the victim is said to have potentially life threatening injuries. The victim was transported to Shands hospital at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
