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

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.
