70-year-old pedestrian nearly killed (08/11/2013)
A Ford F-150 pickup driven by a 51-year-old Alma, Wis., man struck a 70-year-old Winona man who was crossing Broadway Street at the corner of Lafayette Street on Wednesday, August 6 at 10:18 p.m. The older man was rushed to the hospital for head injuries and remained in critical condition until Friday. On Thursday it was unclear whether the victim would survive. Hes in pretty bad shape, said Winona Police Chief Paul Bostrack at the time.

On Friday, Bostrack said it appears as though the man will survive. It is unclear whether he is still in critical condition and the extent of his injuries are not known.

The pickup was traveling east in the right lane of Broadway Street when it struck the older man in the crosswalk and threw him seven feet, according to the report. The victim was not fully conscious following the accident, Bostrack said. The driver told police that he did not see the older man until he was directly in front of the pickup, and he could not brake in time.

No citations or referrals for charges have been made at this time. Police are investigating the accident and said they will wait until the fate of the victim is clear before moving forward with any referral.
