An 82-year-old Pasadena man suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car Thursday evening, Pasadena police Lt. Marcia Taglioretti said.

Taglioretti said police responded to an accident at the corner at Holliston and Villa streets in Pasadena at about 6:49 p.m. and found that the elderly man had been struck by a car while he crossed the street.

The man, who may have been experiencing a medical emergency just before the incident, was crossing the street westbound when the car, traveling south, hit him, according to police.

The driver, a 67-year-old man, also of Pasadena, cooperated with police and stayed at the scene of the accident, Taglioretti said.

She said the man who was struck was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
