A man staggering across both lanes of a highway in Jacksonville, Fla., suffered serious injuries after being struck by a silver C6 Corvette on Saturday night, according to a spokesman with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Lt. Larry Kitchen said the man was taken to UF Health Jacksonville, where his injuries were said to be life-threatening.
“The officer identified witnesses and per witness testimony, the victim prior to the traffic crash had been seen walking back and forth across both lanes,” Kitchen said. “(It suggests) that either he had a medical condition and or he had an impairment due to alcohol.”
The driver of the Corvette stopped immediately and has been cooperating with authorities, he said.
No word was available on the speed the Corvette was traveling when it struck the man, who has not been identified.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide unit is investigating the crash.
