SCRANTON -- A man was hit by a car while crossing the street in Scranton's west side.

It happened at the intersection of North Main Avenue and Jackson Street shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday.

Officers say the man in his 60s suffered life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the car told investigators she was blinded by the sun at the time of the crash.

Police closed the intersection while they investigated.

There is no word on a name or condition of the man who was hit.

    Well, the driver is probably not an older individual. They usually use the “I hit the gas instead of the brake” excuse. Perhaps someone on a cellphone.

      No one was texting. You are so unbelievably naive. Quick to jump the gun. Get the facts straight. It was a tragic accident, yes but not every accident happens because someone was “texting”.

        If the sun was in her eyes she should have stopped instead of accelerating around the corner. People are always flying around west side. Leave your house a few minutes earlier instead of rushing.
