YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A 59-year-old man sustained life-threatening injuries Friday after he was hit by a car while walking on Merrimac Trail in York County.

Virginia State Police were called to the 700 block of Merrimac Trail around 5:45 p.m. Friday for a report of a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian, VSP spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya said.

Police say a 2015 Nissan Altima was traveling westbound, approaching the James-York Plaza, when it entered the left turn lane.

When it entered the lane, it struck a 59-year-old Williamsburg man who was walking “in the middle of the road, against traffic,” Anaya said.

Police are still investigating the crash.

No charges have been placed at this time, Anaya said around 9 p.m. Friday.
