A pedestrian suffered major injuries Friday when a Toyota struck him as he walked in the lanes of state Route 163 near University Avenue.

At approximately 2:13 p.m., the silver Toyota sedan, driven by a male, 65, from Chula Vista,
hit the pedestrian as he walked on SR-163 southbound from the University on-ramp in Hillcrest, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Though his injuries were serious, they were deemed to be non-life-threatening, the CHP said of the pedestrian, who was transported to the hospital.

The driver of the Toyota, who was uninjured in the collision, remained on scene. Drugs
and/or alcohol were not determined to be a factor in this collision.

The cause and sequence of events remain under investigation. Traffic slowed in the area for approximately one hour after the collision.
