A 20-year-old Bend man is in critical condition at St. Charles Bend after being struck crossing Reed Market Road.
Bend Police said Pedro Hureta stepped onto the street at 10:13 p.m. Monday outside a crosswalk in a poorly lit stretch near 339 S.E. Reed Market Road. A westbound vehicle struck Hureta, who was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police reported.
No charges are pending and no arrests were made as a result. Neither drug nor alcohol use are suspected as contributing factors, police said.
The Bend Police reminds pedestrians to obey all traffic control devices. Also, pedestrians must yield right of way to a vehicle when crossing a roadway anywhere other than within a marked crosswalk or an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.
