Elderly man struck by car, critically hurt

 SHEBOYGAN COUNTY (CBS 58) -- An elderly Sheboygan man is in critical condition after being hit by a car while crossing the street.

Police say an 89-year-old man was walking near the intersection of N. 6th St. and New York Ave Thursday night around 9 p.m. 

“The vehicle had come south on 6th street and as he was just crossing the street was struck by the vehicle,” said Ryan Schmitt, sergeant with the Sheboygan Police Department.

The driver stayed on scene and has not been cited.

"As soon as he had struck the person, she stopped immediately and remained on scene. He has been cooperative the entire time,” added Schmitt. 

People say incidents like this cause them to take extra precautions. “I still wear my reflective gear because I know that, so people can see me, so they don’t drive over me.”

The man was taken to Froedtert Hospital.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.
