A pedestrian who was struck by a car in unincorporated Walnut Creek this morning apparently ran into the intersection against a red light, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The collision was reported at 6:39 a.m. at Treat Boulevard and Jones Road, located just southeast of the Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre BART station.
A man was running in a marked crosswalk at the intersection against a red “do not walk” sign, CHP Officer John Fransen said.
At the same time, a 2010 Mazda began to head into the intersection after a green light. The pedestrian continued running and collided with the car as it traveled at about 5 miles per hour, according to Fransen.
He said the man, who is about 60 years old, suffered moderate injuries.
The man was taken to John Muir Medical Center to be treated for his injuries and an update on his condition was not immediately available.
