A man was in critical condition after being run down at the intersection of Grissom and Timberhill.

Police say officers worked an accident near the intersection around 12:30 a.m. Saturday when they heard screeching tires. 

They then saw a man flying through the air after being hit by a car.

The woman driving the car did stop to check on him.

Police say she likely will not face charges because they believe the man did not cross at a designated area.

EMS took him to University Hospital in critical condition.
