Elderly man hit by SUV should survive, police say

An 89-year-old man is expected to survive after being hit by an SUV while crossing the street Sunday morning, police said.

The man was crossing 20th Street next to Market at about 10:30 a.m. when he was struck by an SUV turning left onto 20th from Market, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The driver told police she did not see the man when she turned.

While the man was transported to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in potentially serious condition, Nolte said, his injuries are not considered life-threatening.
