Car hits pedestrian in Butte


BUTTE, Mont. - A man is in critical condition after being struck by a car in Butte, Friday.

Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester tells us it happened at around 8p.

A pedestrian was heading east to west on the 1100 block of Harrison Avenue when a vehicle hit him in the southbound lane.

Lester tells us the man was not in a crosswalk. He was life-flighted to Great Falls.

Lester explains the investigation is on-going and no citations have been issued.

Lester says he does not believe alcohol was a factor at this time. A blood sample was taken from the driver to test for drugs but the results haven't come back yet.
