GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- A Josephine County man is in critical condition after being struck by a driver while crossing the street early Sunday morning, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS).
Emergency personnel responded to the scene of the crash just before 6 a.m. to an area on Grants Pass Parkway near F Street, GPDPS said. It was the driver of the vehicle who called to report the incident.
Investigators found that 28-year-old Braxton Smith appeared to have been crossing in an area marked as "Not a Crosswalk" when 25-year-old Kayla Sandgren of Grants Pass struck him with her car.
"Grants Pass Department of Public Safety would like to remind everyone to us the proper crosswalks, follow the crosswalk signals and be alert for vehicles while you are in the crosswalk," GPDPS said. "This area is a higher speed location which increases risks to pedestrians who attempt to cross in areas which are not safe for navigating on foot."
Smith was transported to Three Rivers Medical Center where he was last reported to be in critical, but stable condition. The incident is still under investigation.
