A pedestrian was struck by a car about 10:15 p.m. Thursday.

A car traveling westbound on Ninth Street clipped the man with the mirror of the vehicle just west of the intersection of Ninth and Ohio streets.

The man was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical.

I hope the pedestrian is ok. People in general just need to pay attention to pedestrians, everyone is in too dang much of a hurry anymore and flat out do not pay attention to what is going on around them. Too worried about that text message they just received.

The city should study putting a crosswalk and stoplight like the ones at 12th & Tennessee around this intersection or a bit west on 9th. 9th street is too wide to cross safely and if you're trying to cross it's too far between the stoplights at 9th & Mississippi and 9th & Tennessee to expect people to walk all the way up or down the street to cross at a light.

I seem to recall several car-pedestrian accidents on this stretch of 9th. I see people running across the street to Jensen's liquor all the time and foot traffic should pick up once the new bakery opens.

---kinda reads like "the man" wasn't in the crosswlk.
glad "the man" apparently didn't suffer serious level I trauma.

I seriously had to answer two questions to see two sentences?

Anyway, that sucks. I hope the pedestrian is alright. Mirror attack... weird.

"Best of" to the pedestrian! Students not even back in town yet, walkers and bicyclers beware!
