A man crosssing west across Cadman Plaza West at Clark Street was struck by a car at roughly 9 p.m. Friday night. The man appeared to be a senior. He was accompanied by three companions.

He appeared to have injuries that included a broken leg, according to EMS, but his condition was not confirmed.

The car that struck the man -- a dark blue or black Lexus -- was turning north onto Cadman Plaza West from Clark Street. The driver, a young man, claimed that the victim was "crossing against the light." A young woman was a passenger in the car.

The victim's companions denied that the man was crossing against the light, saying he would never do a thing like that. They told police that the car "zoomed" out of Clark Street and sped left around the corner without slowing, striking the man.

The victim was taken to Lutheran Hospital. His present condition is unknown.
