A 33-year-old man was flown by helicopter to the hospital after he was struck by a pickup truck while attempting to cross the street in McHenry.

The McHenry Police Department and McHenry Township Fire Protection District responded around 9:20 p.m. Saturday to the 800 block of North Street for a report of a vehicle crash.

Officers arrived and found a collision involving a gold 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck and a pedestrian.

McHenry Police Department Public Affairs Officer Patrick Polidori said that a preliminary investigation showed the truck had been traveling north on Front Street when it struck the pedestrian in the roadway.

A witness reported the pedestrian, a 33-year-old McHenry man, was walking eastbound and attempted to cross Front Street when he was struck by the vehicle.

The man was transported by ambulance to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital.

He was then flown to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for additional treatment of his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, Polidori said.
