EL PASO, Texas – A man who was struck by a police vehicle on the 6700 block of Delta Sunday morning was attempting to cross the road and did not utilize the crosswalk, according to the El Paso Police Department’s Special Traffic Investigations Unit.

Investigators have learned that the 26-year-old male had been seen by witnesses running in and out of traffic while attempting to cross the roadway. The officer who was driving a marked patrol unit attempted to avoid the man but struck him as he ran across the roadway, police said.

The man is being treated at a local hospital for serious injuries.

An earlier report stated that police dispatch told KFOX he might have been hit by another car before being struck by police.  El Paso Police Department spokesperson Mike Baranyay has since confirmed that no other vehicle was involved.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and no other information is available at this time.
