SAN ANTONIO – A 77-year-old man was taken to an area hospital after being hit by a car late Wednesday night, San Antonio police said.

The incident occurred just after 8:30 p.m. in the 7100 block of Wurzbach Road, not far from Babcock Road on the city’s Northwest Side.

According to police, the man was trying to cross the street when he was struck by a 2019 Nissan Altima.

The driver of the Altima swerved to avoid hitting him, but the man fell to the ground. He managed to drag himself to the center turn lane as the driver pulled over, police said.

The man suffered a possible broken ankle and was taken to University Hospital for his injuries.

SAPD said the area is poorly lit and that there is a hill that drivers have to navigate.

Authorities say no charges are expected to be filed.
