A pedestrian was hit by a taxi Tuesday night while crossing Winchester Road.

Lexington police Sgt. Stephen Yoder said witnesses told police that the man was crossing against the light when he was hit by a Yellow Cab at about 9:30 p.m. The man was crossing from Eastland Shopping Center toward Ashton Drive, police said.

He was in stable condition at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, Yoder said. The man sustained injuries to his lower body and blunt force injuries to his head and torso, Yoder said, but he was expected to live.
