A pedestrian in a crosswalk was hit by a car early Tuesday in a Lexington neighborhood, police said.

The vehicle was traveling south on Woodland Avenue, turning leftonto Euclid Avenue, police said. The pedestrian had the right of way.

The pedestrian, who was knocked to the ground, was taken to a hospital, Lexington police Sgt. Ann Welch said. Welch said the man’s injuries didn’t appear to be life threatening.

The driver probably wouldn’t be charged, Welch said.

The accident was the second in a few hours involving a pedestrian. A man was critically injured when he was struck at New Circle and Russell Cave roads Monday night, Lt. Andrew Daugherty said. There was no crosswalk.
