Pedestrian seriously injured after being hit by vehicle at Division and Pacific

A man was seriously injured Tuesday morning after he ran across Division and was hit by a vehicle.

According to Spokane Police, the man ran across Division Street just outside of the marked crosswalk around 9:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Several vehicles were able to stop, but the driver of a vehicle in the left lane did not see the pedestrian, and hit him.

Surveillance video showed the man running into traffic, while a person behind him was walking. The pedestrian that was walking was not hit.

The pedestrian that was hit was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. He was cited for causing the collision.

The Spokane Police Department is reminding pedestrians to “exercise caution and abide by the traffic laws just as the motoring public has to follow. When crossing a roadway as a pedestrian make sure you pause and look at each lane of travel to ensure the vehicles see you and have stopped.”
