WAUSAU (WAOW) – A pedestrian crossing a downtown street was hurt Tuesday when he was hit by a car as a stoplight changed to green for the traffic, the Wausau Fire Department said.

The man, hit about noon at the intersection of Sixth and Washington streets, was taken to Aspirus Hospital with unknown injuries, Engineer Keith Cortright said.

The man got across two lanes of traffic on Sixth Street as cars were stopped for a red light but the light switched to green as a car in the far right lane approached and the driver did not see the pedestrian as the car sped ahead, Cortright said.

Road conditions were not a factor in the crash, he said.

No other details were immediately released.
