Man Tries to Run Across Babcock Rd, Doesn't Make it

posted by 1200 WOAI -

Babcock Road near Huebner in the Medical Center appears to be the prime location for people to attempt to run across a darkened stretch of road away from a crosswalk, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

A 61 year old man is hospitalized with multiple injuries after he tried to run across Babcock about 10PM Sunday night and was hit by a passing SUV.

The driver jumped out and called 9-1-1.  The man is in serious condition.  The driver will not face charges.

As is often the case in these incidents, police say there was a well lighted, marked crosswalk less than 100 yards away.

Last week, a woman with two small children attempts to run across Babcock Road.  She didn't make it, either.
