I hope he will be ok - thank god he wasn't hurt more seriously. It appears he was in the crosswalk when hit - Was the driver of the car arrested? Please continue to update the story. This is a dangerous road and most drive to fast on it. It wasn't too long ago I was crossing at this same intersection with my kids after church and a driver in the right southbound lane stopped only to have a following car move and pass while we were in the crosswalk.
