Pedestrian hit by car, seriously injured


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A pedestrian suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car in Norfolk, Friday.

Norfolk police say the 31-year-old man was hit near the 7600 block of Shore Drive, just before noon. He was transported to Sentera Norfolk General Hospital with what appeared to be serious injuries, according to police.

Investigators believe the man was walking in the northbound traffic lane because he was trying to retrieve an item that fell from a vehicle he was in. That’s when a Doge Challenger hit him.

The driver involved in the crash remained at the scene. No charges have been filed, at this time.

All lanes of traffic have been reopened.
