A 77-year-old man got out of his car and was trying to cross the street when he was hit and critically injured by a car. The man’s name has not been released. He was taken to a hospital after he was struck with critical injuries.

The crash happened at Silver Beach Road at Congress Avenue. The 50-year-old woman who hit the man wasn’t hurt. She was driving a 2010 BMW at the time, police said.

The woman had been traveling east while the man walking was driving west on Silver Beach Road. Somehow, the man’s car became disabled, so he got out of the vehicle and tried to walk from the north to the south side of the street, police said.

The BMW driver was unable to avoid the man as he walked in front of her car, police said.

First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victim was transported to a Regional Hospital for treatment.

Silver Beach Road at Congress Avenue is partially blocked due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles on this route are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. The delay of traffic on this route is due to the severity of the crash. It is best to make use of alternative routes.

The crash remains under investigation. Please drive with caution and stay safe.
