The man was taken to the hospital in serious condition, though his injuries are not life-threatening, according to the police.

"At this point, we have a few conflicting statements. We’re not sure if he was walking against the light or with the light," the captain said. The investigation is ongoing.

The male who was driving the car was not injured, Cardona said.
