Officers responded to the call just before 7 a.m. to the 3600 block of Culebra Road, which is located not far from Northwest 36th Street and North General McMullen.

According to police, the 78-year-old man was carrying a bag full of aluminum cans and darted out into the street outside of a crosswalk.

The man was hit by a woman driving a compact car, police said. The driver said she didn't see him because there was another car in the way. The man suffered a head injury and numerous broken bones after colliding with the driver side mirror and door.

The driver did stop and was checked out by paramedics herself because she was shaken up by the incident, police said.

No charges are expected to be filed against the driver.
