A Hinesville man was seriously injured Wednesday evening as he attempted to cross a Hinesville street.
According to Hinesville Police Department Traffic Accident Investigator Lt. Max McLendon, Reggie Bernard Redding, 33, of Eagle Creek Mobile Home Park was injured just before 8 p.m. as he attempted to cross Gen Screven at the intersection near Highway 84.
In a report filed by Officer Les Patten, Angela Williams, 21 of Hinesville was driving her 2002 Ford Escort heading toward Highway 84.
Williams told police she was just pulling into the left lane when she felt something bump with vehicle.
McLendon said it appears Redding, while crossing the street in front of the Flash Foods service station, may have either walked or run into the front left fender of Williams vehicle.
“At this time, we’re not sure if he was running across the street, or why he chose to cross at that location,” McLendon said.
Redding suffered severe injuries to his left arm and leg, causing multiple fractures.
 McLendon said medical personnal on the scene decided to air lift him by LifeStar to Savannah’s Memorial Health University Medical Center where his condition is unknown.
McLendon said Redding was alert and said to officers he did not know what happened after striking the vehicle.
Williams according to McLendon was driving about 30 mph at the time of the accident. “It appthat alcohol does not play a factor in the accident and there will be no charges filed.”
Williams told police she did not see Redding due to dark clothing he was wearing. A witness who was driving behind Williams at the time of the accident also confirmed not seeing Redding.
