Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - FRONT PAGE -

A man struck by a car while jay­walk­ing will be tick­eted af­ter he is re­leased from the hos­pi­tal, po­lice said.

A man who was struck by a car while jay­walk­ing on Par­ti­tion Street in the vil­lage will be tick­eted af­ter he is re­leased from the hos­pi­tal, Saugerties Po­lice Chief Joseph Si­na­gra said Satur­day.

At 12:46 p.m. Satur­day, the man, who Si­na­gra did not iden­tify, walked into traf­fic at 106 Par­ti­tion St. and was struck. “He walked right in front of a car,” Si­na­gra said.

The driver, who was not in­jured, will not face any charges, Si­na­gra said.

“Pedes­tri­ans do not have the right of way un­less they are in a cross­walk,” he said.

The pedes­trian will be tick­eted for fail­ing to yield to a ve­hi­cle in a non-des­ig­nated pedes­trian cross­ing, Si­na­gra said. The vic­tim was still at HealthAl­liance Hos­pi­tal’s Broad­way Cam­pus in Kingston, await­ing X-Rays late Satur­day af­ter­noon, the po­lice chief said.
