Lt. Krag Campbell said in a release that witnesses saw the man walking near the road, when he stumbled unexpectedly into the road. A 31-year-old woman driving a Dodge van struck the man.

Initial assessment showed that the man had been struck in the hip and ribs, according to JPD. The vehicle was damaged to the front left corner panel and side mirror.
